How can I turn off my iPhone 6 screen and still get calls?


iMore Question

When my screen was dark, calls went to voicemail. I fixed that by changing the lock schedule to 'never'. Now my screen is always on. I feel that's a waste of power. I should be able to get calls even when the screen is dark. Can someone help? Thanks.

Smartphones are designed to receive calls and text while the device is on standby. IE your screen is off and you have a cellular signal

Your issue is not with the screen going dark at all. Test call yourself when you know you have a signal
