How to answer a call on a Samsung Galaxy S3

 Although we all like to think we know what we're doing when we get a new phone the sad truth of the matter is that we aren't all technologically able. So in this guide we're going to show you how to do the most basic of things with your Samsung Galaxy S3, how to answer calls. After all what's the point in having a phone if your not going to answer it?

When somebody calls you, you will see a screen like the one in the screenshot to the left. The screen will show a number (or name if you've saved the number and given them a name), an image in the middle (if it's a contact it will show the picture you've saved for the contact), two different icons-a green phone and a red phone, as well as the "Reject call message" (click here for more on that option) option at the other. From here answering a call is really easy.

When you receive a call you can either decline it, answer it, or decline it and send a message. To decline the call you pull the red phone to the centre of the screen, if you do this you will be taken straight back to the screen you were on prior to the call. If however you want to answer the call, you pull the green icon into the centre.

If you answer the call you will be taken to a screen like the one on the right handside. Again all the call details are at the top of the screen (the person's number, the country and even the length of the call) and at the bottom you have various options such as ending the call, using speaker phone and even using the keypad (in cases where you may need to use a dial tone).

Hopefully, this guide aimed at the newest owners of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will help you take those vital calls!

  1. I'm sliding the green phone over to the center and it's still not answering the call.
