Making a call
Calling someone on your contact list
- Say "Call John Smith" or "Put me in touch with John Smith."
- If you’ve only stored one phone number or this contact, the system will make the call with that phone number.
- If the contact has more than one number and you’ve set a default category , the system will make the call with the number in the default category. Otherwise, the application will ask which phone number to use.
- You can also specify which number to use by saying something like "Call John Smith at work."
- The application will confirm the name before making the call. You can then decide to make the call or cancel it.
Dialing a phone number that’s not in your contact list:
Say "Dial" or "Call" and then the number. For example, "Dial 514 555-1234" or "Call 416 555-1234."
- In the majority of cases, you'll have to provide the 10 digits of the phone number, starting with the area code.
- You can also reach 411 and Bell customer service (1 866 310-BELL).
- You can call toll-free numbers (800, 866, etc.), 900 numbers, international numbers and numbers that require an operator (0+).
- If you want to call 9-1-1, we strongly recommend that you do so by dialing 9-1-1 immediately after picking up the receiver, rather than using Voice Dialing. This will ensure you get the best possible 9-1-1 service.
Make a long distance call:
Say "long distance" before asking to call a specific contact.
- If you've already stored the number in your contact list as a long distance number, there's no need to say "Long distance" before making the call.
- If you've activated the Long distance prefix in the My Profile section of the Web application, there's no need to say "Long distance" before making the call.
