HOW-TO / 10.27.14 / tywill1

The next time you need to ignore an incoming phone call, consider responding to the caller by sending a short message using Reply Now.

When this feature is enabled, tap on the Reply Now button on the incoming call screen and select one of three possible messages you’d like to send. You also have the option of composing a custom message.

If the caller is in your BBM contact list, your message will be sent as a BBM. If the caller is not in your BBM contact list your message will be sent using SMS instead. You can customize the three default messages as well to suit your needs – find out how after the break!
