How do I set up and use speed dials on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone?

Speed Dials

 

You can use speed dials to set a number to any of your contacts.

The number 1 is reserved for voicemail. Note that your voicemail number is set by your network provider and you may need to contact them to get it set up.

The number of speed dial locations depends on your device. For older devices, you may be able to set up to 99 contacts, while new devices can allow up to 999.

 

Note that the screens shown may differ slightly depending on your model and the theme you have on your device. 

 

Adding or deleting a contact on Speed Dial

 

1. Tap the phone icon. If you can't see it, you may need to tap Apps first.
