Learn how to make calls on your HTC One Max.

Make a call with Smart dial

You can either dial a number directly, or use Smart dial to quickly place a call. Smart dial searches and calls a stored/synced contact or a number from your call history.

Note: You need an LTE plan to use your operator’s 4G LTE network for voice calls and data services. Check with your operator for details.

  • Open the Phone app.

  • Enter the phone number or first few letters of the contacts name to see the top matching contact.

Note: If there is more than one match, you’ll be told how many matches. For example, tap “8 MATCHES” to see all 8 matches.

  • Tap the contact you want to call

    Note:

  • To check other phone numbers associated with the contact, tap Associated icon beside the contact name. If the phone number has an extension, tap Extension Keyboard icon after connecting to the main line and then dial the extension number.

  • To hang up, tap End Call.

Changing the Phone dialler layout

Switch between the Smart dial keypad to find contacts with just a few taps and a full screen keypad that gives you more room to enter phone numbers.

  • Open the Phone app.

  • Tap Menu > Full screen keypad or Smart dial keypad.

Dialing an extension number

To skip voice prompts when dialing an extension number, do one of the following:

  • After dialing the main number, press and hold * . The letter p is added to the number you are dialing. Enter the extension number, and then tap Call. You will be connected to the mainline and then to the extension number.

  • After dialing the main number, press and hold # to add a w. Enter the extension number after the letter w, and then tap Call. After connecting to the main line, tap Send to dial the extension number.

You can save phone numbers with an extension in the People app.

Returning a missed call

You’ll see the missed call icon in the status bar when you miss a call.

  • Slide the Notifications panel open to check who the caller is.

  • To return the call, spread your two fingers on the missed call notification to expand it, and then tap Call back.

If you have multiple missed calls, tap the missed calls notification to open the Call History tab.

Calling a phone number in a text message

  • Tap the phone number within the message.

  • Tap Call.

To call the message sender, tap the received message, and then tap Call on the options menu.

Calling a phone number in an email

  • Tap the phone number in the email body.

  • Tap Call.

Calling a phone number in a Calendar event

  • Open an event in Calendar.

  • On the Event details screen, tap the phone number.

  • Tap Call.

Receiving calls

When you receive a phone call from a contact, the Incoming call screen appears.

Note: HTC One max will automatically adjust the ringtone volume when you use the polite ringer and pocket mode features.

Answering or rejecting a call

Do one of the following:

  • If the display is on when you get a call, tap Answer or Decline.

  • If the display is locked when you get a call, drag Call icon or end call icon upwards.

After declining a call, you can send a text message to the caller or create a task to remind you to return the call.

Note: You can also press the POWER button twice to reject a call.

Muting the ringing sound without rejecting the call

Do one of the following:

  • Press the VOLUME DOWN or VOLUME UP button.

  • Press the POWER button.

  • Place HTC One max face down on a level surface.

Note: If HTC One max is already facing down, it will still ring when there are subsequent incoming calls.

Look who’s calling

Every time you make a call or your friend gives you a ring, you get to see your friends latest social network status update right on the call screen. Youll also see a birthday reminder if your friends birthday (stored on your phone or online account) will happen in a few days.

Viewing a task reminder while on a call

Did you promise to babysit for a friend this weekend? If you associate a task with a due date to a contact, you’ll see a task reminder on the call screen when you’re on a call with that friend.

Note: If the contact has a recent status update, you won’t be able to see the task reminder.
