Prevent incoming calls from interrupting dialing
« on: November 13, 2017, 01:32:45 PM »
If I'm in the middle of dialing a number and another call comes into my phone it interrupts my dialing to show the incoming call, is there a way to prevent this? so that if i'm in the middle of dialing i don't have to hit ignore and then dial the number all over again.

Thanks in advance.

You are not the first to say this.

I believe right now there is no way for the phone system  to know that you are dialing and will always send the call.
The only way I know of for your phone to ignore a call is to put in in DND mode.
This does work btw.

Feature request?
In theory the phones could be configured to auto DND when you start dialing but then they would also need to put a dial timeout in place to clear the screen if you don't finish dialing so it doesn't stay in DND indefinitely.

The phone system might not know that you're dialing, but if you've got the phone off the cradle then it knows the phone is in use in some manner - so suppress the incoming call notification (or make a new non-obtrusive notification)  because currently it's annoying as all get out!
