Where is the call settings on android smartphone?

Even though the above steps are based on the old version of the Android phone, the settings option can be found something similar on all the phones, whether it is Android 9 Pie, Android 10, or even the latest Android 11. However, it is also to be noted that each smartphone manufacturer customizes each phone application based on their preference. Hence, the option can be a bit different for each device.

The general way to find the call setting is by clicking on the phone app on your mobile. Then click on the setting (3 dots at the top right corner). From the option, click on Settings. You can find all the options under the call settings in the next window, including Calling Account management, Call recording (if available), etc.

Click on the Calling account to manage the settings preferred to each SIM on your phone. Select the SIM as per choice, and you can find additional settings such as WiFi Calling, Video Calling option, Call Forwarding, Call barring, etc.

If you are using Google Phone as the default Phone app, the settings will be the same. But as said before, due to the customization by the manufacturer, some options might be disabled.
