How do I turn up the volume on my phone while I’m on a call?

We get this question a lot! While you’re on a call, just press the volume buttons (on the face or side). Pressing the button at any other time changes the volume for ringtones and alerts. The volume level you set while you’re in a phone call will be the default audio level for other calls until you adjust the volume in-call again.

Help! My iPhone won’t ring, and I’m seeing Do Not Disturb, with a moon showing on my phone.

Here’s some help from Apple: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204321.

How do I clear the cache and browser history from my Android phone?
