    In order to call a contact, you're going to first need there to be a contact. You cannot just ask your phone to call random people. It will not do that. You need to have the number and the information stored as a contact in the contact list. You'll also need to have Cortana activated because she is the personal assistant that we would talk to in order to activate a phone call by our voice. So the first thing you need to do is press the magnifying glass located at the bottom right corner of the screen. Press and hold it.

    Because Cortana is American, and my voice is English, this may take some time. We pronounce the vowel A slightly differently. So now I'm going to ask her to "call." And there we go.

    So she's done it. Let me try it again just to see if it works. I'll press on the magnifying glass again to open Cortana.

    "Call Stan." Okay, so if you're not American you may have to do a very bad American accent to get it to work, but it is possible. As you can see, she tried to phone Stan, but Stan being the elusive figure he is, he has not answered his phone.
