Turn on the Reply Now feature

You'll never have to excuse yourself from a meeting or conversation to answer the phone again. With the Reply Now feature, you can send a brief message to a caller when you ignore or decline an incoming phone call.

You can send a Reply Now message to any caller that is a BBM contact, or to any caller that has a mobile number listed in your contact list.

  1. In the Phone app, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap the Settings icon > Priority Calling.
  3. Set the Reply Now switch to On.
Once you've turned on the Reply Now feature, you can also edit the default Reply Now messages.
