  2. 2
    A green phone icon

    And you can also find the phone icon, so again there's two ways to get to it, your phone on the main screen there, or by tapping the apps button
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Since we have the phone on the main screen, we're going to just go ahead and tap that there
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Tap on phone one time
    .
    That's going to open up the phone, now you have got a series of options here; I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Duos which means I have two SIM cards. Here is the keypad, here are all of our numbers, and the number one is a shortcut to your voice mail.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    You can press and hold zero, that will give you a plus sign
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    As you see, there's a backspace, you can also do 00
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    00 instead of the plus for most places
    .
    Generally speaking though, that is unnecessary. Here is your asterisk key, here is your pound key. This is also a shortcut key for our volume options when you have that set.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Up here is our log
    .
    Call logs, red indicates outgoing calls, there's a little phone icon, there's a red outgoing call to Kara. Here's a red outgoing message, there's a green incoming message, red outgoing message, red outgoing call, and a green incoming call. Those are how your call logs work.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    I can choose to tap here on all logs
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    I can see all logs, all calls SIM 1, SIM 2, missed calls, deleted calls, received calls, and all messages, or sent messages, also received messages
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    This is great because it quickly allows you to cycle through your call list
    .
    If you want to delete this stuff you just tap over here on this.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    And you can select individually, or you can delete, and you can search for a particular call, you can see the call duration, and you can tap on the settings
    .
    Here is our contact settings.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Nothing special, nothing spectacular there
    .
    If you want to get call information, here is the call information.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Call information that you can access for your phone, whether you are rejecting calls, how you answer, and then any call-related pop-ups, call alerts, call accessories, lets pop on call alerts to show you
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    So, here is vibrate when answered, call connect tone, and minute minder lets you know how long you are talking
    .
    This is actually helpful if you are on one of those plans where you have limited minutes. I'm not though, so I don't use that. Let's go back.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Ringtones and keypad tones, personalize call sound, and you can also have video
    .
    You can hide video, you can get your voice mail set up, you have accounts, and you have internet calling as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Here's the voice mail option
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    So you can use voice mail settings from your carrier, we are not going to go in to that right now
    .
    That would be for another tutorial. This is just to give you a quick overview of the call, and what you can do quickly and easily with your call settings.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Here's a list of favorites, you can add a favorite, these are my recent contacts, but if I wanted to make a favorite, my favorite, for example is Mr
    .
    Werewolf boy.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    I can set him as a favorite
    .
    I'm not going to do that though. There is also contacts. You can see your list of people, your calls, who is in there, and you can choose the settings you are going to have for people. You can also add contacts, here you can set up a group.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    I can put people in here, I have Ice-emergency contacts, co-workers, family, friends
    .
    I can create my own group, it doesn't matter. As you can see I already have some people under VisiHow, some people under my contacts.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    I can also add a new contact
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Save contact to Device, SIM 1 SIM 2, Samsung Account, Google Account, or I can add a new contact, I am not interested in adding any new people at the moment
    .
    When I want to make a video call to someone, I just tap on the icon here for a video call.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    If I want to make an SMS I just tap here
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    If I want to press phone call, I can make a phone call
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Again, the green phone with the picture is video call, the yellow envelope is SMS, and just the green phone icon is a message, and also I can send e-mail
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    So I tap that its asking me how I want to open my mail, I'm just going to tap back to get out of there
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    So this is how you set up and use your contacts, your phone lists, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the Samsung S5 mini
    .
