Silence Incoming Calls

Description

A TTY (also known as a TDD or Text Telephone) is a telecommunications phone that allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language disabilities, to communicate by telephone. Your phone is compatible with select TTY phones.

Please check with the manufacturer of your TTY phone to ensure that it is compatible with digital cell phones. Your phone and TTY phone will connect via a special cable that plugs into your phone's headset jack. If this cable was not provided with your TTY phone, contact your TTY phone manufacturer to purchase the connector cable.

Tap to place the checkmark to turn on hearing aid compatibility.

Connectivity

The following topics address your phone’s connectivity options, including USB file transfer and tethering,

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, IR connectivity, and more.

Connections Optimizer

The Connections Optimizer is a tool that automatically selects the best mobile network for your phone, including "remembered" Wi-Fi networks.

About Connections Optimizer

The Connections Optimizer helps you manage and enhance your data experience by finding and connecting to "remembered" Wi-Fi networks on your phone. Remembered Wi-Fi networks are networks with which you have previously chosen to connect. Active Wi-Fi connections may offer improved performance and generally improve battery life while allowing you to talk on the phone and use data at the same time.

The Connections Optimizer works by searching for available "remembered" Wi-Fi networks. If you do not leave your Wi-Fi antenna on all the time, you will only notice the Connections Optimizer operating at certain times of the day in a small number of locations on the network. Your Wi-Fi antenna will conserve battery by scanning for connections periodically (not continuously), and if no connection is achieved, the antennas will be turned off. You may also manually turn the antennas off during the scan period.

To facilitate quality assurance and enable feature enhancements, information is collected about your battery levels, Wi-Fi and network connections, and usage. No personal information is collected.

Enable Connections Optimizer

1. Tap > > Settings > Networks tab > More > Mobile networks > Connections

optimizer. You will see a disclaimer.

2. Read the disclaimer and, if you agree, tap I Agree to turn Connections Optimizer on.
