What Does Incoming Call Mean? 

Incoming calls are phone calls that you receive. In short, Whenever your phone ring, it is an incoming call. The caller’s name and number will usually appear on your screen unless you do not have their contact information saved.

Incoming calls can come from anyone, whether they are on your contact list or not.

What Does an Incoming Call Mean on iPhone?

Incoming calls are defined as any call that you receive on your iPhone. This can be a call from someone on your contact list or a call from an unknown number.

When you receive an incoming call, your iPhone will ring or vibrate, and a notification will appear on your screen. You can then choose to answer the call or ignore it.

If you choose to answer the call, you will be connected to the person who is calling you. If you ignore the call, the caller will be directed to your voicemail (if you have one set up), or they will hear a busy signal.

How to Respond to Different Callers?

An incoming call can be from different people or businesses. A person trying to sell you something, a friend or family member, a telemarketer, a survey taker, a wrong number, a prank call, or an emergency call.

  1. If someone selling something, be polite and say that you’re not interested.
  2. If it’s a friend or family member, you can have a normal conversation with them.
  3. If a telemarketer on call, you can say that you’re not interested and ask to be put on their do not call list.
  4. If it’s a survey taker, you can politely decline and say that you’re not interested.
  5. If it is a wrong number, you can apologize and say you are not the person they’re looking for.
  6. You can hang up and then block their number if it’s a prank call.
  7. And if it’s an emergency call, obviously, you would handle the situation as best as you can, depending on the emergency.

How to Stop Incoming Calls without Blocking?

You can stop incoming calls without blocking the number in a few different ways. One way is to turn on Do Not Disturb. This will silence all incoming calls and notifications, and you will not be disturbed.

Another way to stop incoming calls is to use Airplane Mode. This will disable all cellular signals on your phone, including texts and incoming calls.

The difference between these two modes is that on “do not disturb” mode, incoming calls will be shown in the call log, but on “Airplane mode,” it will not show in the call log.

How to Answer an Incoming Call While on Another Call?

If you are on a call and you receive another incoming call, you will see a notification on your screen. You can then choose to answer the new call or ignore it.

If you decide to answer the new call, you will be connected to the new call, and your old call will go on hold. Then you can return to your old call after finishing the new one.

You can also choose to end your old call and answer the new one. To do this, simply tap on the “End & Accept” button, and you will be connected to the new call.

Why Incoming Calls are Essential for Business?

Incoming calls are essential for businesses because they provide a way for customers to reach out and contact the company. This benefits both the customer and the business, as it allows for communication between them.

Incoming calls also allow businesses to upsell or cross-sell their products and services. By talking to customers on the phone, businesses can better understand what they need and offer solutions that fit those needs.

How to Make the Most of Your Incoming Calls?

You can do a few things to make sure you are making the most out of your incoming calls.

  1. First, having a professional greeting for your incoming calls is essential. This will ensure that you are giving the right impression to whoever is calling.
  2. Second, it is important to be prepared for your calls. This means having all of the necessary information at hand so that you can address any questions or concerns that the caller may have.
  3. Third, taking advantage of any opportunities that come from incoming calls is important. This could mean setting up a meeting with the caller or getting their contact information so that you can follow up with them later.

Incoming calls are a great way to connect with people, so make sure you make the most of them!


So, every time your phone rings, it is an incoming call. Incoming calls are a great way to connect with people, whether you are taking calls for business or personal reasons.

However, if you want to stop receiving incoming calls, you can simply enable the ‘Airplane’ or “do not disturb” mode.
