The automated phone call message is optional and premium service.

Sorry, I am not available for phone calls, and I am happy to help this way.

However, if you opt for phone call then another expert will call you based on their availability.

Thank you for the image.

This indicates the control is locked; please press and hold the two buttons (marked in the image attached) for around 10 seconds to unlock the control.

This should solve the issue, if there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
