عند عدم وجود هاتفك أو عندما تكون بطارية هاتفك غير مشحونة
Explanation:
إمكانية إجراء مكالمة هاتفية من هاتف شخص آخرعند عدم وجود هاتفك أو عندما تكون بطارية هاتفك فارغة أو غير مشحونة

It happens every day. People either forget their smartphones or discover that their phones’ batteries are dead. So, if they have to send a text or make a call, they borrow a phone from a friend. It’s not the end of the world, but it does have a disadvantage: The call or text won’t come from your own phone number, so you have to explain that it’s really you on an unfamiliar number. If it’s a call, the recipient may even ignore it due to the strange number. And the borrowed phone won’t have your contacts in it, so if you can’t recall a person’s number, you’re sunk.
