Galaxy S3: How do I set up and use speed dials?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Speed Dials

To set up speed dials on your mobile device, touch Phone1 at the bottom of the Home screen. Then touch Menu 1  > Speed dial setting. Touch one of the 99 speed dial locations in the list and select a contact from your Contacts list. If multiple numbers exist, you will be prompted to select a specific number.

To make a call using speed dial, from the Phone 1 app, dial the first digit of the speed dial number, and then touch and hold the last digit to start the call. For example, if you want to call speed dial number 25, touch 2, and then touch and hold 5.

Quick Add

To quickly add a speed dial to one of the locations on the keypad (2–9), touch and hold the desired number. You will then be prompted to assign a speed dial, if none has been assigned. Touch OK and select a contact from the list of contacts.

NOTE: Speed dial location 1 is reserved for Voicemail and cannot be edited. To edit a speed dial that you have already assigned, touch and hold the speed dial location, then touch Replace.
