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.
