Speed dial is a feature available in your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge which will let you assign a contact to a speed dial number so you can easily call the contact simply by long pressing the assigned speed dial number in the keypad.

  4. Tap + Add contact in the required speed dial number. 
  5. Select the required contact you want to assign to the selected speed dial number.
  6. The selected contact has been assigned to the selected speed dial number.
  7. To assign more contacts to speed dial numbers, repeat from the step #4. FYI, you can assign up to 999 contacts to your speed dial numbers.

Tips: It'd better if you place your important or favorite contacts in the top 10 or in the special numbers(e,g: 123, 555, etc) so you can easily remember in which speed dial number the contact you want to call is assigned with and save yourself from calling a wrong contact problem.
