Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: How to Manage and Use Speed Dial Feature in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

Speed dial is an old feature that you still can find in your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and can be used to assign a contact to a speed dial number so you can easily call the contact simply by dialing the speed dial number. It'll save you more time because you don't have to dial complete phone number to call that contact.


How to manage the speed dial feature in the Phone app?
You can do so by using the following steps:
  1. Open the Phone app.
  2. Tap More at the top right and then select Speed dial.
  3. To assign a contact to a speed dial number, do as follows:
    • Tap + Add contact next to the required speed dial number.
    • Select the required contact you want to assign to the selected speed dial number.
    • The selected contact has been assigned to the selected speed dial number.
      FYI, you can add up to 999 phone numbers to the speed dial list. For easier usage, you can place your most favourite or important contacts in the top 10 or in the special number to help you easily remember in which speed dial number the contact you want to call is assigned with and avoid you from calling a wrong contact when using the speed dial.
  4. To remove a contact from the speed dial, do as follows:
    • If needed, tap or at the top of the list to find the required contact you want to remove from the speed dial.
    • Tap next to the required contact you want to remove.
    • The selected contact has been removed from the speed dial.


How to use the speed dial feature in the Phone app?
See the following steps as the example of using this feature:
  1. Open the Phone app.
    If the keypad is hidden, tap at the bottom right corner of the screen to show the keypad.
  2. To call a single speed dial number, long tap the required speed dial number. As the example, if you have assigned a contact name Albert in the speed dial number "2", long tap 2 on the keypad to have your phone automatically calls Albert.
  3. To call a multiple speed dial numbers, tap the numbers and then long tap the last number of the required speed dial number. As the example, if you have assigned a contact named Robert in the speed dial number "123", tap 1, tap 2 and then long tap 3 on the keypad to have your phone automatically calls Robert.
