How do I Make a Call from my Samsung Galaxy Legend™?

There are many ways you can use your device to make a call.

Call From Contacts List

Quickly call any contact in your contacts list by touching the contact and sliding your finger to the right side of the screen.

Call From Phone App

  1. From the Home screen, touch Phone  in the favorites tray by default. If you have removed the phone app from the favorites tray, touch Apps > Phone .

  2. Dial the number with the keypad, touch and hold a number to dial a saved speed dial, touch the voicemail button to call your voicemail, or touch the Logs and Favorites tab at the top to dial a number from those lists.

Adding Speed Dials

Add up to 99 speed dials to your device. Open Phone and press Menu > Speed dial setting. Touch a speed dial location and select the contact you want to assign to the speed dial.

Speed dial location 1 is reserved for Voicemail and cannot be modified.

Call From Home Screen Shortcut

  1. Add contact shortcuts to a Home screen. 

  2. Swipe to the Home screen you want to add the shortcut to, and touch and hold an empty area.

  3. Touch Apps and widgets > Widgets > Direct dial and select the contact you want to add as a shortcut and, if necessary, select the phone number you want to dial. 

  4. When you touch the shortcut, your device will call the phone number assigned.

Call Using Samsung S Voice

  1. Press Home to activate the S Voice application. Say "Call [Contact Name] mobile" to call the contact's mobile phone number.

  2. Or say "Dial 8175550100" to dial a phone number.

    • S Voice must first be configured before using this option.
    • From within the application, touch Menu > Settings > Open via the home key.

End a Call

To end an active call, touch the End Call button. If the call has not yet connected, touch End call.
