[quick tip] Mirror your calls from one phone to another phone

Posted in mysms quick tips by mysms

Do you own two phones with two different numbers? Isn’t it annoying to take both phones with you all the time? Imagine how convenient it would be to manage all your messages and even calls from both devices on one single phone. This is possible with mysms mirror!

Manage calls from two phones on one single device

Manage calls from two phones on one single device

 

mysms mirror is an SMS extension for mysms on your second phone. As you might already know, it allows you to manage your texts from two phones. With the latest update we’ve added a great feature to manage also calls from your other phone. So mysms mirror makes it obsolete to take two phones with you and allows you to handle messages and calls from one smartphone.

 

How to get notified on calls

Please make sure you’re using the latest versions of both the mysms app for Android phone and mysms mirror for Android phone (the feature will be available for mysms mirror for iPhone soon. Update: It’s already available on the Apple App Store). You will notice that mysms mirror shows a phone icon. Tap on this icon to show your complete call log from your other phone and to start a call. When someone calls you, a popup will be displayed, where you have the options to mute (yellow button) or dismiss (red button) a call. Additionally you can start a callback or respond with a message.

By using this feature you will never miss a call or a message from your other phone. The call feature is also available for Android tablet, Windows 8, Windows 7/XP, Mac and the web app.

 

A short hint: To make use of the whole call feature set on every device, go to the mysms phone settings and enable the option “Remote call” in addition to “Call log”. This option allows you to start calls directly from your tablet and desktop in addition to notifications on incoming and missed calls.

 

Have you already tried the call feature on any device? We’d be curious what you think about it. Feel free to share your experiences in the comments.

 

Update October 9, 2014: Starting today we are introducing a new Premium model that will be different to the Premium that we presented in this post. mysms mirror is one of many features that is included in the newly introduced Premium offer. Find more information about mysms Premium here.

    Hi, I am new to the blog. I wish to.try out the calling featurd but the web page does not allow to.download any trial version. Can someone help me in this.

    • Hello, to see how it works without paying, please download and register on the Androidphone that you want to mirror and log in to our web app app.mysms.com on your second phone. You will see all your texts and calls on from your first phone.

        Do I have to be connected to cellular network or I can be on wifi network and yet can receive notificatons on my second cell phone. Not making calls.

        Thanks

      • Hi,

        the phone you want to mirro needs to be connected to both cellular network and internet. The second phone (on which you install mysms mirror) only needs to have an internet connection.

        Best, your mysms team

  • Niels-Peter Nielsen

    When can I expect this is possible with the mirror app for iPhone?

    • Hi Niels-Peter, the mysms mirror app for iPhone has already been updated. If you mirror your messages from an Android phone to your iPhone, you can use the entire feature set. Hope this helps.

      • Niels-Peter Nielsen

        So it is only possible to answer calls, and not make an outgoing call through the other phone?

      • You’ll receive notifications for incoming calls, but the call itself needs to be made on the other phone via the regular phone app.

    I have two queries In case,
    (1) If I make a call back then receiver would receive my call from which number “New” or “Old”?
    (2) I would like to make call back from “old” number remotely, Will it be possible?

    I have two phones, I tend to leave one in the car, since it is attached to my “Automatic” device in my vehicle. I tried using the mysmsmirror, but it doesn’t utilize bluetooth.. So I am unable to recieve calls via the other phone. For instance, If i forget my phone at the house, or leave it in my bag in the trunk.. (or i don’t want to waste battery on my primary phone) I would like to be able to see both… kind of how on google voice, it rings both phones.
