How to Create Custom ‘Reply with Message’ on iPhone in iOS 6

iOS 6 let you reply to calls with a message – this came in handy when you were unable to pick the call but wanted to let the caller know that you’ll call him/her back. All you had to do was swipe the phone icons whenever you received a call and tap on Reply with Message, followed by the message you want to send.

To make things easy, Apple put three default messages. Tap on them and the message got sent automatically. You also had the option of a custom message: tap this and the call will be disconnected, a new message window opens up with the caller as the recipient.
