This article is part of the VisiHow series of tips and tricks on how to use the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Make emergency calls in Kids Mode on your Galaxy S5

In Kids Mode, you can't create texts or make calls, but you can call emergency numbers.

Kids Mode allows you to let a child play with your Samsung Galaxy S5, without worrying that they'll delete important applications, access email, or otherwise make a mess of your phone. While Kids Mode is enabled, your phone basically functions as a portable game and education device. This means you won't be able to use basic phone functions, like calling, messaging, or browsing the internet. However, for safety reasons, Samsung has included a feature to allow emergency calls when your Galaxy S5 is in Kids Mode. It is recommended that you teach older children how to make emergency calls while in Kids Mode.

Things to remember

  • The safety of your child is the most important thing. See to it that you have instructed this very well to your kid in case there is a need to dial an emergency number. If you can, let him try the steps for a few times, just make sure to cancel the call before it can get through.
  • Emergency calls require a working network connection. If your phone is on a location where there is a problem with the signal, the call may not connect.
