    A green phone icon.

    Tap on phone one time.
    That's going to open up the phone, now you have got a series of options here; I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Duos which means I have two SIM cards. Here is the keypad, here are all of our numbers, and the number one is a shortcut to your voice mail.

    00 instead of the plus for most places.
    Generally speaking though, that is unnecessary. Here is your asterisk key, here is your pound key. This is also a shortcut key for our volume options when you have that set.

    So, here is vibrate when answered, call connect tone, and minute minder lets you know how long you are talking.
    This is actually helpful if you are on one of those plans where you have limited minutes. I'm not though, so I don't use that. Let's go back.
