The call feature built into the Samsung Galaxy S5 and S5 Neo allows you to make a phone call without having to use a wallet-size QWERTY or touchscreen device. This is a great feature to have when you need to contact someone but do not want to rely on voice alone.
There are several uses for conference calls, including sharing information between members of your group, contacting the police or emergency services, and using the same phone as an answering service.
The best use of conference calling is using a smartphone as an answering machine. You can set your smartphone to record any incoming and outgoing calls, leaving you with only one device that can be used for both purposes.
This article will go over how to use conference calling on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.
Three people can join a conference call
You can have up to three people on a conference call, but they must be able to hear everyone on the other end of the line.
You can have one-on-one calls, but not conference calls. You can only join a conference call if you can hear everyone on the other end of the line.
You cannot be joined by another person when a conference call is enabled. Only people who want to be on the call may enter their phone number.
Entering a phone number while a conference call is enabled will prevent any other person from joining, as will entering a zero as the extension. If you need to exit before the start of the next item, then you must turn off the call immediately.
You need the phone number of the person you want to invite
When you call the phone number you have for the conference call, you must have it enterprised and configured in your Samsung Galaxy S5. You can do this automatically when you install the OnStar Mobile App, but you must do it manually to complete the invite process.
You will need to provide your name, phone number, and time of day you are available to host a conference call. This is important to make sure there are no errors in when requesting these details as there must be at least two of them for a successful invite.
Once your request has been accepted, another person on your party can start requesting requests immediately after you finish yours. This is so people do not wait for everyone to finish before starting a new call!
Remember: When hosting a conference call via the OnStar Mobile App, use speakerphone mode or turn off the microphone when communicating with other users.
Invite the people you want to join your conference call
You can easily invite people to your conference call by sending an email or phone call to your invited persons.
When a person accepts the invitation, they can participate in the conference call as a speaker. You can ask your invited people to speak about their services or products!
You can also create a group for your conference call and then invite your group members. They can join at any time, even when you are conducting the call.
Once everyone is engaged, you can start the conversation. You may want to include some introductory statements and comments, then you can talk about whatever you want to talk about.
The most important part of a conference call is that everyone speaks up! If someone does not feel like talking, or if they are too tired or they did not prepare enough, then they may leave the conversation before things get too boring or serious.
Ensure that your phone is compatible with a Galaxy S5
If you are looking to use the Samsung Galaxy S5 on a different network or with a different provider, then you should make sure that the phone is compatible with that network or provider.
This means that if your phone does not have LTE or 3G connectivity, then you must take into account whether or not you can use the S5 on a conference call.
If your phone does not have Voice Band Connectivity (VBC), then you must consider whether or not you can use the S5 on a conference call. If so, then you would need to have your own device connected to the same network as the phone to facilitate communication.
Make sure that you have the latest software update
If you have a previous Samsung Galaxy S5, make sure that you have the latest software update. The latest software update fixes the issue of incoming calls being interrupted by an incoming message or notification.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, make sure that you have the latest software update. The latest software update fixes the issue of messages going off on your phone at the same time as an incoming call.
Make sure that you have the correct email address for your Samsung device to ensure that your new device receives its next update. If you do not have an email address for your new device, then send yourself an updated firmware file from http://www.samsung.
Keep your Galaxy S5 close to you when making a call
When you are making a call, you can easily keep the Galaxy S5 close to you. Just don’t put it in your pocket or take it with you. Instead, hold it by the case and gently place your index finger on the back to slide it up under the case.
You can then wrap your other hand around the phone and place your thumb on the side to slide it up under the case. This method keeps a secure grip on the phone and makes texting and playing games easier.
Holding your Galaxy S5 by its case gives you more room to operate with while making a call. You can rotate and control how much information you want to give out while holding this technique down.
This feature is very helpful when making calls on their personal phones, not their primary phone.
Know how to end a call and start another one
When a call ends, you have the option of starting a new call or completing your current call. If you have a following up phone call set up, you can continue with that!
If you are just now seeing this article, it has an alert set so you can jump into the app and start another call. You can also email your contact information to yourself so that you can easily start a follow up call!
This feature makes sense if you have a very busy life, but how many times do you need to speak to someone? Maybe only when something important is happening in your life, or when there’s an urgency involved.
Either way, having this feature available is great as it saves time and resources.
Mute or un-mute yourself during a call
You can silence or unmute yourself during a call. This is done by pressing and releasing the End/Return button at the same time.
You can also do this via the phone app. Just tap on the Talk & Voice button, then click on Mute & Unmute yourself.
This is very helpful if you are busy talking and need to stop at a certain point to listen to someone else. You can also do this when you are being recorded too!
This is very helpful if you are busy talking and need to stop at a certain point to listen to someone else. You can also do this if you are being recorded, because your caller will not be able to talk for a few seconds while they look for an answer or escape route.
