What’s the main purpose of your new smartphone? To make a phone call right? Well most of us don’t actually make phone calls anymore, well there are still quite a few people that make plenty of phone calls on their smartphones. So we thought we’d take some time and go over the Phone app.
Making a Phone Call
1. Go into the App Drawer and open up the Phone app
2. Type the number you want to call on the dialer
2. Swipe to the left to your call log and choose someone to call
2. Swipe to the left again and choose someone from your contacts.
Change your notification tone: Phone > Settings> Phone Ringtone OR Settings > Sounds > Phone Ringtone
Voicemail notifications: Phone > Settings > Voicemail > Ringtone

Voicemail Setup: Phone > Settings > Voicemail > Setup
Set a Quick Response: Phone > Settings > Quick Responses

That’s about it for the Phone app. It’s not a difficult or confusing app, but for those new to Android, it might be a bit confusing. Once you get used to it, you’ll love it. The dialer on stock Android looks really nice. If there’s anything we should add, please let us know in the comments below and we’ll add them.
