Tesla Model S: Using the Phone App

When your phone is connected to Model S using Bluetooth, and you have allowed access to information on your phone (see Importing Contacts and Recent Calls), you can use the phone app to display and make a hands-free call to anyone listed on your phone.

  • Calls: Displays recent calls in chronological order with the most recent call listed first.
  • Messages: Displays message in chronological order with the most recent message listed first. You can view, send, and receive text messages. Instead of typing a text message, touch the microphone button on the right side of the steering yoke to enter text using your voice.

WARNING: To minimize distraction and ensure the safety of occupants as well as other road users, do not view or send text messages when the vehicle is in motion. Pay attention to road and traffic conditions at all times when driving.

  • Contacts: Contacts are listed in alphabetical order and can be sorted by first name or last name. You can also choose a letter on the right side of the list to quickly scroll to the names that begin with the selected character. When you touch a name on your contacts list, the contact's available number(s) displays on the right pane, along with other available information (such as address). Touch the contact's number to make a call.
  • Favorites: Displays the contacts from your phone that you have identified as Favorites.
  • Calendar: Displays calendar entries from your phone (see Calendar). If an entry includes a phone number or an address, you can make a phone call, or navigate to a destination, by touching the corresponding information in the calendar entry.

Making a Phone Call

You can make a phone call by:

  • Speaking a voice command (see Voice Commands). Voice commands are a convenient, hands-free way to call or text your contacts.
  • Touching a phone number shown in a list in the phone app - Contacts, Calls, or Calendar.
  • Using the Model S on-screen dialer in the Phone app's Calls list.

NOTE: If it is safe and legal to do so, you can also initiate a call by dialing the number or selecting the contact directly from your phone.

NOTE: You can also make a phone call by touching a pin on the map and choosing the phone number (if available) on the popup screen.
