Dialing, Answering, Placing Calls on Hold, and Voicemail
After purchasing the Motorola Q, try out the basic features of the phone. To turn the phone on, press and hold the Power/End key until the screen brightens. To turn the phone off, press and hold the Power/End key for three seconds or until the screen goes black. Once the phone is on, try to make a call. Using the keypad, dial a number. The digits should appear on the home screen of the phone. After dialing, press the Call/Answer key to place the call.
There are several options when a call comes in. Either press the Call/Answer key to answer the phone or press the Accept Left Soft Key to answer. If you can't answer the call currently, press the Ignore button. This will send the call to voicemail. After answering a call, if you would like to place the call on hold, press the Call/Answer key. To return back to the call, press the Call/Answer key again.
If you receive a second call during the current call, you can choose Answer or Wait. If you answer the second call, the first call is placed on hold. To direct the second call to voicemail, select Wait.
Voicemail messages are stored on the phone's network. A voicemail icon will display on the home screen when you receive a voicemail. To hear the voicemail, do one of the following three things listed in the Motorola Q manual: press and hold the 1 key; dial *86; or select Voicemail from the home screen and press the Center Select Key.
