A guide on setting up speed dial on a Samsung Galaxy S2

 Although finding and calling contacts on a Samsung Galaxy S2 cell phone is incredibly simple via the contacts screen some people will prefer to set up a speed dialing system where you merely need to hold a number to call a contact. Setting up a speed dial contact is incredibly simply and something anyone can do.

Th start with you will need to open up the phone application (by default it'll be a big green button on your home screen). When you've done that you will need to press the phones "menu" button to open up a small menu at the bottom of the screen. When you've done this your screen will look something like the image to the right.

When you've opened that menu you will need to click on the top left option, the one called "Speed dial setting". After pressing that you will seen a screen that looks like the screen shot to the left with all the numbers and a + with them all. Select one of the numbers (between 2-9) and you'll then have to select the contact you want to associate with that number. For this example we've added "Bee" for the number #2 speed dial as you can see to the right.

If you go back to to your phone application and hold the associated number you'll call the contact with out needing to fiddle with the process of scrolling down your contacts. One thing you will need to remember is which contacts you've associated with which numbers. Trust me I wouldn't want to call Bee and go "Hi, how you dad?" or something similar.
