Making Calls and Call Screen Options

To make a call tap the Dial Pad button at the bottom of the screen.

The caller ID that you selected in the General Settings is displayed at the top (Unknown, in the example shown here, hiding your number from the receiver). 

The Dial Pad screen is also accessible from other screens where you either see the call icon    or from the More menu.

The Dial Pad screen is very straightforward. Simply dial the phone number you wish to call and tap the phone icon to initiate the call.
