How to use a Call Alert as a short text message

If you can't talk and want to text instead, you can use the Call Alert feature to accomplish this.

To use Call Alert as a texting feature, you can turn off the audio beeps by following these steps:

For Android:

1. Go to Options>Alerts>Call alert. Turn alert setting to None.

2. Tap on the Call Alert icon on the talk screen to text a message

 

For iOS:

1. Go to Settings>Alert tones/vibrate>Incoming Alert. Turn alert setting off.

2. Tap on the Call Alert icon on the talk screen to text a message
