If the phone is pin-locked, on the lock screen, when you flick upwards, it is the bottom left button on the dial-pad. The phone does not need to be unlocked to make an emergency call.
If the phone is not pin-locked, to get the emergency services you need to dial the relevant number using the regular dial-pad, which may differ depending on which country you ...
112, 911 and 08 are mandated as an emergency number by the GSM standard (see page 12 of the linked document). Thus all phones that fulfill the GSM standard will allow calls to 112 even when locked, no matter where you are (e.g. in the US, the 112 call will transparently be mapped to 911). This should even work without a SIM card in your phone.
AFAIK there ...
Most Lumia phones should also support flip-to-silence (ignoring an incoming call by flipping the phone display down), which you can activate in Settings → Audio → Enhancements.
Microsoft's Gestures Beta app also provides the same functionality, plus a few other handy features. Not sure if it'll work on your Lumia 635, though - Microsoft mentions ...
You should have "call + SMS filter" in settings, using that you can block calls and SMS.
Or in Call History tap and hold to any contact you will have context menu showing,
- block number...
- add to speed dial.
I have these settings on my Lumia 525,530
OS Version : 8.10.14219.341 - same in both.
I assume that your windows phone is the latest update..

Your friend can call you from a different country or vice versa even when you have disabled roaming. This option only disables the Mobile internet when you are roaming. It does not block or disable SMS or voice calls.
He told me that the voice says my number doesn't exist.
Ask your friend to verify the country code. There is no way for this to occur due ...
That looks like a typo to me. Instead of the People app, open the Phone app and go to Settings, that's where the call forwarding option is.
For more information, see the official calling + messaging how-to.
WhatsApp have confirmed that this feature is "in the works" for Windows Phone, although no ETA has been given.
WhatsApp Calling for your platform is still in the works. Unfortunately, we cannot comment on any future release timelines but we appreciate your interest in WhatsApp Calling.
Update: Calling functionality is now availably in the ...
No, there isn't. There are no 3rd party apps, either, since the OS blocks any other apps from using the mic while you are in a phone call.
EDIT: For reference, call recording functionality has been built into Windows 10 Mobile.
Make sure you are using latest version of windows phone 8.1 thats officially,
LUMIA DENIM - 8.10.14219.341. as per Microsoft.
If you are not getting to know about incoming calls or messages,
try resetting your phone in Settings > about > reset,
and if you have tried resetting and still facing issue,
you can get notification in Notification Center about ...
This feature is somewhat "hidden", so I will post it here:
Open Phone app.
Tap "...", then tap "select calls".
On this screen, tap "..." again. (this is difficult to find!)
Tap "select all".
Tap the trash icon.
You can't. Although the Skype Preview app is able to use legacy (voice+SMS) part of your cellular connection* to send SMS, it does not support cellular voice calls. All Skype calls (voice or video) are over the Internet, using either your WiFi or your cellular data connection. You need to continue using the Phone app to place calls using your usual minutes (...
I took long time for me to find out how I can see to which sim somebody calling.
Call is displaying in different color.
For example if call to sim 1, I see the following:
and for sim 2:
I cropped images, to show only scrennshot buttom.
Go to Settings->Phone.
Turn off Call forwarding.
A small icon is shown at top of my status bar: phone horn icon with
small arrow pointing to the right.
You can refer to this answer here to know more about icons in status bar.
Currently that feature is not available for Cortana, since currently Microsoft doesn't program Cortana to be able to make calls from a specific SIM card, but this is really a good feature to have since there are quite a large number of Windows Phones that have the dual SIM capability.
I recommend that you give this suggestion via Windows Feedback app in ...
You say that you are using "the latest windows preview" and your title says "10.0.10586.36".
As of 5th February 2016, the latest is 10586.71 (Slow Ring), as announced in the Windows Experience Blog.
First, if you have still sometimes access to the network, check for updates.
If you are in Slow Ring, you could also try the Fast Ring.
It is also possible ...
The only way to make a video call with a Windows Phone is to use Skype o some similar software.
There is no native support to 3G video calls on WP, like on iOS or Android.
The costly video call service provided directly by some ISP on their 3G networks (an innovation circa ten years ago) is now provided by several different Apps: the default one on WP is ...
The Windows Insider Program is for testing out new version of Windows both for PC's and Phone's. It's for serious Windows Phone aficionados and tech experts to test out the new software.
If you think S/MIME has something to do with trying to escape an

Unfortunately you cannot change the way calls are being displayed. The swipe issue you are describing is a known bug for some Lumias. A quick fix should be to turn the screen off and back on before swiping up.

To turn off International assist follow these steps :
Open the Phone application.
Tap the 3 dots (...) at the bottom right of the screen.
Slide the International Assist toggle to either On or Off.
