    Now, we have the speed dial locations that are available and those that are taken.
    When it talks about setting up speed dial, it means when we open the phone application to call someone, and we see the keypad, we can use speed dial. This means we can just press down on one key, and it will phone the person that key, or number, is connected to.

    For example, we have "2:
    Stan". When the keypad is open, and we press and hold down on number 2, it will automatically dial the number for "Stan" because we have connected "Stan" to the number "2".
