Tech Bits: Unable to take a phone call? Nicely decline it by sending a text message. (Faculty & Staff)

Ever receive a phone call in a meeting or in the middle of something that you're unable to answer?

In case you didn't know, your phone gives you a quick option to easily send a text message to that person while declining the call. When you see that you're getting a phone call, tap Message (iPhone), or Send Message (Android), then tap which text message you would like to send to the caller, such as "Can I call you later?"
