If you need to call someone back quickly, don’t bother redialing the number. Actually, don’t bother digging through your phone app to tap on the number in the call log. Instead, use this easy hack to quickly redial the number. This method works both oniPhone and Android devices. Simply follow these steps:
Start your phone app.
Now, simply tap the call button located at the bottom of the screen.
As long as you initially dialed the last number before making the call, …the app should automatically fill in the last number you dialed.
You are not yet done however. Make sure to tap the call button one more time to actually place your phone call.
Keep in mind, when I say it fills in the last number you dialed, I mean exactly that. It won’t fill in the last number you called from your contacts, for example. It’ll be the last one you typed in manually on the keypad (or pasted in to the white area at the top of this screen).
I find that rather weird but all right, Apple. In addition, if you reboot your phone, this redialing information will get lost so if you haven’t manually dialed anyone in a long time, it’ll probably appear as if this feature isn’t working for you.
All in all, I find this handy, but if you’re not a fan, you can always ask Siri (“Redial the last number I called”) or your “Recents” tab instead. Tapping any number there will of course call it.
In our testing, we’ve found this trick works perfectly on all iPhone models, Samsung Galaxies, Google Pixels, OnePlus devices, as well asAndroid one smartphones. If you find this hack doesn’t work on your specific smartphone, however, let us know in the comment section below.
