The 2015 Thanksgiving season is here and we have received a flood of thank you messages from around the world: An entrepreneur thanked Dingtone for enabling him to communicate with customers and successfully complete business negotiations when his business was at a low point and he couldn’t pay the phone bills, the mother of a marine soldier thanked Dingtone for allowing her to keep in touch with her son who is on duty far away, and there was also a fan who thanked Dingtone for letting her hear the live voice of her idol.
As for encouragement and trust, we at Dingtone won’t rest on our laurels but will increase our efforts to improve. In this Thanksgiving season, Dingtone’s developers are filled with gratitude for the customers. They have carefully thought about the customers’ needs and made significant improvements on Dingtone’s two most basic functions – calling and messaging.
Dingtone Calls, Faster Than the Rest
Call faster and conveniently check voicemails
You may have hundreds and thousands of phone numbers in your contacts, but there are only a few numbers you use on a daily basis. In this new version of Dingtone, when you tap the dial pad you will see a record of recent calls instead of the dial pad, letting you select the desired person you want to contact with one glace. What happened to the dial pad? Well there’s a blue icon at the bottom of the screen, tap on it and the dial pad appears. On the screen with the call records, you can also directly listen to voicemails you haven’t heard yet. Isn’t it so fast and convenient?
Immediately select your outgoing phone number
With Dingtone, your phone becomes one device with many numbers, therefore, when you call different people you naturally will need to display different phone numbers. Now when you call a new number for the first time, Dingtone will ask you to select which outgoing phone number you want to display or you could also hide your number to make anonymous calls.
Dingtone Messages, Taking Care of the Little Details
Recall, archive, pin messages to the top and save drafts
As the saying goes, “A word once spoken, cannot be taken back”, but Dingtone can help you take back messages! Do a long press on the message you want to take back and Dingtone will be able to recall it if the message was sent out within 5 minutes.
As for messages you especially love, you can add them to your favorites, where you can also forward them to friends. For friends that you regularly chat with, you can pin their message to the top of the message list so you can see it right away.
You’re half-way through writing a message and need to exit Dingtone to attend to other matters, what happens to the message you were writing? Dingtone automatically saves your draft message and will even prompt you in the message list so you can immediately continue writing your message.
Web page preview function to allow safer browsing
You receive a suspicious address link on your phone, what is it? Is it a virus? Is it suitable to open in public? Dingtone Messages has added a new function to preview web pages, giving you a peek at the website before opening the link so you can decide if it is worth opening.
Insufficient account balance, Dingtone will save your messages
What to do when you don’t have enough Dingtone credits and you can’t receive messages? Dingtone will send you an alert “Your friend XXX sent you a message, however it cannot be delivered since your account balance is low. Please top-up your account balance as soon as possible in order to receive the message.” After you top-up your account balance, you will immediately receive the message.
More Dingtone international numbers available
As the world’s largest OTT virtual operator, Dingtone phone numbers have always been a much loved service for Dingtone customers. Along with the phone numbers for US, UK and Canada already available, this version update adds numbers for 4 more countries – Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Chili – giving customers more choices. Having phone numbers with multiple country codes, makes you more international.
Besides the above mentioned features, this version update has many more little improvements waiting for you to discover. This Thanksgiving version of Dingtone is simultaneously released for iOS3.1 and Android 2.6.
