Questions and Answers[Edit]
What is the default password for Galaxy S4? I don't know the password to unlock call barring?[Edit]
There is no set password for call barring. When you attempt to activate the call barring service on your phone, you choose your own password before you can activate it. When asked for a password, simply enter the password that you want and call barring will be activated. When you need to deactivate it, simply follow the same procedures and enter your password again.
If your phone is asking for a password even if you have not set it yet, try the default 0000. This is the default password for network carriers. Take note that there is a limit to the number of times that you can enter the wrong barring password, then the only way now is to call your network operator and ask for a reset of the barring password for your device. It is important to know that any reset on the device will not reset your password. Only the carriers can help you with this.
The only default password on the device will be 0000 or 1111 which in fact is the default code for things pertaining to pairing or passwords on your device.

How to end one conference call while keeping 2nd call?[Edit]
I am trying to end one call on a conference call on my Galaxy S4 and I cannot figure it out...I have researched it on Google and it says while on a three way call you should be able to select the menu option and select manage contacts but I don't have that option"
This depends if your carrier is a GSM or CDMA. Usually the option for being in between two calls is available with GSM providers. The list below will tell you which is GSM and CDMA
GSM Carriers:CDMA Carriers:
Sprint, Verizon and U.S. Cellular
So far, if you are a CDMA consumer, there is no app to end a three-way call. However, if you are GSM user, just let the other caller hang up on the call and it will automatically switch to the other caller.

Can´t hear the caller and he can´t hear me?[Edit]
I have problem with my Galaxy S4 mini. When my husband calls me from his S4, he cannot hear me and I cannot hear him. However, we both can normally call and hear other people and receive calls from other people and they hear us and we hear them. We have not changed any settings and we are not rejecting each other's calls. What to do?
This issue has been talked about as of now, some people fixed the issue by hard resetting both of the devices. The issue might be due to one or both parties deleting important information from their phone, or someone might have inadvertently downloaded an application that has corrupted the device.
Also you can contact your carrier's customer service in order to help reset your network settings, without having to reset your whole device because of this issue.

You shouldn't have any problems with this function, as this is one of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S4. If it isn't working, you need to check with your service provider. If you are on a limited data plan, this is more likely the reason why this function is not allowed. On the other hand, if you are on an unlimited data plan and this still doesn't work, it may be because the signal is not strong enough to support this function. In this case, you can solve this problem by taking up your concerns with your service provider.

Yes, in order to activate Call Barring, you will need to insert your password for your device, so the device knows this action is coming from the owner. When making changes such as these you will need to enter your password to confirm that you are the owner of the device.
The password they are asking you to enter for Call Barring is the password you have set up on your device. Before the update it could be a pin, pattern or password. If you would like to continue, simply enter the password for your device, or you will need to set up a new password for your device.
I want to make a conference call with my S4 - is that phone or provider dependent?[Edit]
Do I need to use an app or can I do this directly through the phone?
Conference Call is a network-provider dependent feature. Most networks allow conference calls, so check to see if your network provider allows this. You don't need a third party application to this on your Samsung Galaxy S4, You just need to do the following.
- Call the first participant of the conference call.
- While on a call, tap on "Add call".
- Type and call the number of the second participant, or click "Contacts" Tab, then select and call the person you want to add in the conference.
- The first participant will be put on hold.
- Tap on Merge to merge the calls.
- That's it.

Choosing apps takes me to a screen with all of my apps on it and there is not one for call log already loaded as an app[Edit]
If you want to see your call logs on the phone. You do not need to go to the list of applications or the applications drawer on the phone. Just launch your dialer app on the phone where you usually dial a number to call one of your contacts. You will find tabs on top of the screen, once you launch the dialer app, Tap the Call Logs and you will find the list of contacts that you made within the past day, or few days or weeks. The call logs there do not only list the phone numbers that you have called, but it also includes the phone numbers you have texted or SMS.
I want to know what the Merge Calls looks like[Edit]
The Merge Calls normally looks like two arrows. One below and above, like meeting between the line to create one arrow in the middle. They basically merge in the middle to become one. Whenever you select the Merge icon, you will see another icon on your phone screen
Cannot disable the Call Barring feature on my phone as it asks for a password whenever when I tried to disable it[Edit]
It is normal for it to ask for a password as a security protocol. The default password for Call Barring is 0000. If you changed this default password before, basically this does not have a recovery. You need to try to recall your password in order to disable Call Barring.
If you fail to remember your password, you need to back up the phone's data to your computer, then reset the phone back to factory settings. Then you can restore the deleted files and disable the Call Barring on the phone by using the default - 0000.
If the Conference Call feature is not present on your phone, then your phone does not support this feature. Not all Android phones allow you to make conference calls. Normally, for phones that support the conference call feature, it will be visible on your phone screen upon making a first call. Whenever you made a first call, you should have been able to see an option that looks like a plus sign in a circle. This is the icon that allows you to add a contact to be called, then to merge the two of them. If this is not present, then the phone is not able to do conference calls.

There is no Swap option on my Samsung Galaxy S4, what can I do to swap the calls to talk to the first caller and put the other one on hold?[Edit]
Actually, there is a swap option on your Samsung Galaxy S4. The said option is not really visible on your phone screen. There are different steps for making a conference call or merging calls. In order for you to swap calls and put the other call on hold, follow the steps:

I find it bogus using a phone where you cannot use conference; I might need to use my old phone. Due to this CDMA and GSM technology thing. I am not sure what the difference is[Edit]
This is normal technology for handheld devices that can be on CDMA or GSM technology. There is a lot of confusion regarding this technology being used on handheld devices. Currently, there are two big companies in the United States using CDMA technology, where in international technology, it is no longer available, or being phased out. It is exclusive technology for US networks. The companies that use CDMA technology are Verizon and Sprint. So, now to answer your question, what does CDMA?
Remember that CDMA phones do not have a SIM card slot for you to insert new numbers for your mobile phones. Although there are CDMA phones that have SIM card slots, but only from Sprint or Verizon networks (4G Data network). To make it short, you can only use one feature at a time, such as, making conference call where you can only do one call at a time or when your data connection is enabled and you make a call or calls, the data connection will become disabled, to prioritize the call.
Normally, you are required to call the network carrier to have them change the settings on the phone remotely and to have it activated based on the plan you get or subscribed from them.
Let us talk about the GSM. GSM are typically phones that have SIM card slots, that allows you to insert network SIM cards. GSM does not require you to contact a network carrier for the phone to become activated, as you can simply insert a SIM card from a network carrier of your choosing. GSM uses multiple tasking, which allows you to make a conference call and use data at the same time.
If you are planning a trip abroad or to other countries, it is best if you have a GSM ready phone that is unlocked to allow you to use their networks. Just like Philippines, where they use GSM technology allowing you to have a Philippine phone number.
To Sum it up, it is not the phone's fault but it is the feature of a certain network carrier why you cannot do multiple tasks. It is due to the CDMA technology your network is using.
I do not see Merge or Conference Call on my phone and so as Additional settings, where can I look this up?[Edit]
One possible reason why Conference and Additional settings are not available on your phone is due to the phone being set to easy mode, and not in the standard mode. You need to change this easy settings mode to a standard mode to have full access of all the features on your phone. The easy mode is meant for beginners to make the phone simple to navigate, just like with an iPhone.
To switch from Easy to Standard mode:
1. Go to your Settings and drag down the Notification Bar on top to bottom.
2. Tap on Settings, the one that looks like a gear icon on screen.
3. Select the Easy Standard mode then tap the Apply button to apply the settings. Now your phone should be back to standard mode.
If your phone is not currently on easy mode, but you still cannot find the Additional settings, you can find it by simply opening the dialer on your mobile phone., although you need to launch the dialer first.
1. Once you have the Dialer or Phone on your screen, simply tap on the Menu soft key that is located on the left hand side of the home button.
2. On the small pop up menu on screen, you'll see: Send messages, Speed Dialing and Call Settings. Tap on the Call Settings to open another set of options.
3. Now, in the Call Settings screen, you should be able to see several options. The list includes the Additional Settings, located in the middle screen. Tap it to open the menu, which will allow you to configure the settings you want.
There is no Additional Settings when I go to Apps then Settings. Any work around?[Edit]
Actually there is no work around for you to go to the Additional settings on your mobile phone. The Additional Settings cannot be found in the list of Applications and in the Settings. This can be found in the Dialer or Phone where you usually dial a phone number. Simply go back to the Main Screen or Home screen on your phone, the one that looks like a green handset.
Once you have launched the Dialer or Phone. Tap the Menu soft key on the left side of the Home button. A pop-up selection will appear on your screen. You will see a list - Call Settings, Speed Dialing and Send Messages. Tap on the Call Settings and there you will find the Additional Settings, just below the Call Accessories and above the Ringtone and Sound Settings.
Tap the Additional Settings, which will allow you to change or add some settings on your phone, such as; Fixed Dialing Numbers, Auto redial, Call Waiting, Call Barring, Auto Area Code, Call Forwarding and Caller ID.

How many calls can be merged at one time?[Edit]
Need to have a conference call with 7-8 different contacts. Will Samsung S4 allow this through the merge call feature
The conference call for Samsung Galaxy S4 is not ideal when you need to have a conference call with 7-8 different contacts. It may be possible, but you may end up having a line that's not very clear.
For Conference Calls with large numbers like this, you may want to opt for other solutions, such as using Go To Meeting or setting up conference calls with Arkadin. These are far more reliable and you are guaranteed a clearer line. These are also usually free or they allow a free trial for a certain period of time.
