Hi @Teslawasright


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you


Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support. We appreciate your patience.


You will not be able to default the print in black option on your phone, you will have to select it every time you initiate a print job.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
