iPhone Respond With Text

I think I have previously mentioned there are tons of features in iOS that just go unused. For me, one of those features is Respond With Text (responding to phone calls with a text message.) I just set this up the other day, should have been using it all along. I will primarily be using it for SPAM calls on my iPhone 8, but there are other uses as well. Here is how to set up Respond With Text.

Respond With Text

Start by tapping on Settings in your iPhone. Then scroll down and tap on the Phone Setting:

Tap on the Phone Setting
Tap on the Phone Setting

Next, tap on Respond with Text:

Tap on Respond with Text to proceed
Tap on Respond with Text to proceed

You are taken to a screen where you can setup your texts:

Enter your own texts in place of the Defaults
Enter your own texts in place of the Defaults

When you first enter this area there are some Default texts. All you have to do is tap on one of them and add your own text replies:

Add your own responses
Add your own responses

I use the “I don’t accept SPAM calls” response the most. Just cater your responses to the type of calls you receive and how you use your iPhone.

Conclusion

The Respond With Text feature is super easy to setup. I have used it a few times already to reply to SPAM calls. I don’t know if it will discourage any SPAM calls on my iPhone, but it still gives me a good feeling to tell those people to bug off.
