    Alternatively, you may need to enter a PIN, pattern, or other unlock method depending on what you have set up.
    The next thing you are going to want to do is tap on the phone. This is the green phone icon which is on the bottom left of your phone if you're running the stock install.

    If you've modified the installation, which you can learn how to do by watching our videos on how to install custom launchers and launch screens, then you will probably know where your phone is.
    But, if you don't, just look for the phone icon. In our case, we are simply going to tap phone here. Alternatively, you can also tap apps if you are unsure of where your phone icon might be.

    As you can see, I've got no call logs, however, by tapping on contacts, you can see I've got quite a few contacts in this phone.

    You can see that zero is the shortcut for plus, and then I have a P under the star, and I have the volume button under my hashtag, and number 1 gives me a voicemail.

    This will open up and let me select contacts.
    In this case, I'm going to set up number 5 as a speed dial because that's right in the center of the area. Now, what's I'm going to do is scroll down until I find Lika. And I'm going to tap on Lika.

    And we're going to set her up for speed dial.
    Now when you do this, you are going to see a message on your phone that lets you know you can save up to 999 speed dial numbers.

    Realistically, if you have 999 speed dial numbers, that would probably mean you had somewhere in the order of 10,000 or 20,000 contacts, which is an absolutely enormous number of contacts.
    Most of us are going to have anywhere from 5 to 10 speed dial numbers. However, as indicated here, you can certainly set up more if that is your preference. When you want to call a single-digit speed dial number, you simply tap and hold that keypad number. However, if you want to call any speed dial number, for instance, number 10 or number 15 in your speed dial, then in that case, your going to have to press the first number or if it's in the hundreds, the first and second number, and when you get to the last number in your speed dial, at that point, you are going to press and hold it. So, as listed here, in our example, you might want to have number 15, in which case you would press 1 and then you would press and hold 5, which would bring that up. At any rate, let's tap OK and close this window.
