What it is and how to set up «dialing» or speed dialing on your mobile phone

Qué es y cómo configurar el «discado» o marcación rápida en tu celular

Being able to call your favorite contacts or emergency numbers quickly or without wasting time is one of the first things you should set up on your mobile. One option is to place your contacts on your desktop to call them with a single touch from the home screen. The other is to set up dialing or speed dialing so that you can call them in one touch, but in this case from the phone application.

As the name suggests, it allows you to quickly «dial» a phone number. Yes, as fast as a touch. Obviously, it serves to avoid wasting time when someone calls. Instead of having to search for the contact in the phonebook or enter the phone number manually in the caller and then press the call button, you can simply associate a contact with a number on the keypad to call. Then press and hold that number (long press) and the call will be made immediately.
