Calling Features    

 

Call display

What is call display?

Call display shows the caller's number on your mobile phone’s display screen whenever your phone rings. This lets you know who's trying to reach you.

Using call display

You will automatically see your callers’ numbers displayed on your mobile phone screen. You don’t have to do anything to activate the service.

You’ll also see the caller's name displayed if the caller is in your phonebook. And, depending on your mobile phone model, all the numbers of people who call may automatically be stored in a list or log when your phone is on and in a service Zone.

If the display reads Restricted, it means the caller has intentionally blocked their number.

Call waiting

What is call waiting?

Call waiting lets you receive incoming calls when you're already on the phone. When a second call comes in you'll hear a soft beep (only audible to you). Follow the instructions on your phone’s screen to answer the second call and your first call will be put on hold.

If you decide not to answer a second incoming call, the call will be forwarded directly to your voicemail.

Note: When you use call waiting, air time charges apply to both calls. Call waiting doesn't work when you are using 3-way calling.

Using call waiting

  1. To answer the second call, look for the on-screen menu, which will provide an option to either Accept or Answer. Choosing this option will put the current call on hold and connect you with the second caller.
  2. Use your menu options to put the second call on hold and reconnect with the first caller.
  3. You can alternate between callers as often as you wish by using the menu options. Some phones also allow you to create a 3-way call with the two callers. Please consult your phone's user guide for details.
  4. To end the active call, press END.

Good to know: Do not press END to hang up on just one caller, because this will end both calls. Ask one caller to hang up and carry on your second conversation.

3-Way Calling

What is 3-way calling?

3-way calling lets you add several people to a mobile phone call. You can connect the other callers at the start of your call, or add people to a call that’s already in progress.

Note that airtime usage applies to all calls when you use 3-way calling.

Making a 3-way call

  1. Connect up to three people by dialling the first number and then pressing SEND. Wait until the person answers.
  2. Use the on-screen menu and select Options or Add Caller and then dial the second person.
  3. Once the second person has answered, repeat the second step to add up to three people.

Adding someone to a call in progress

  1. Once you have one person on the line, use the on-screen menu and select Options or Add Caller, then dial the second person.
  2. Once the second person has answered, you can repeat.

Call forwarding

Unfortunately, call forwarding features are currently unavailable.

Voicemail

What is voicemail?

Lucky Mobile voicemail takes messages when you can’t answer the phone, and can store five messages of up to one minute each. Unheard messages will be stored for a maximum of 5 days.
