Set up smart dialing

You can use smart dialing to set a default area code and country code that is applied automatically to the phone numbers that you call, so that you don't have to dial the country code or area code when you make a call within your own country.

Smart dialing also makes calling an organization or company easier, too. When you set an extension access number for a company, you only need to add an extension number in the Contacts app for a contact at that company, and the company's phone number and extension will be dialed automatically when you call that contact.

  1. In the Phone app, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings > Smart Dialing.
    • To change the default country code or area code, tap Country Code or Area Code.
    • To set a company's extension access number, tap Set your Extension Access Number.
Tap any of the drop-down lists to change other smart dialing options.
