    1. Hi There,
      I'm glad to find this article can help you.
      Enjoy reading and have a nice day :)

  2. How do I assign non-default numbers to speed dial? For instance, I have somebody's home and cell numbers, and I'd like each to be assigned to a speed dial number.

    1. Hi Sara Christensen,
      Thanks for coming.
      First, you have to remove mark as default number in the contact with multiple numbers, then you can assigned each of the number to a speed dial number. But, if you have mark one of the number as the default, then you can only assign the default number as a speed dial number.
      Hope this helps :)

    2. Thank YOU! This has been bothering me for quite some time!
