Make Phone Calls

With your iPhone, you can make phone calls anywhere you have a connection to the cellular network. You can dial a phone number using the iPhone’s keypad, but you can place calls more easily by tapping the appropriate phone number for a contact, using the Phone app’s Recents screen, using the Favorites list, or using Siri. When other people near you need to be able to hear the call, you can switch on your iPhone’s speaker; otherwise, you can use the headset for privacy.
