How to auto redial: app, iPhone, Samsung, in Android

Certain phones have an auto redial function that allows your phone to automatically redial if a call is unable to connect. In this article we will show you how to enable auto redial on your device in the settings menu, and if that doesn't work, then we have an auto redial app that you can use.

Is there an auto redial app?

If neither of the above methods work or are satisfactory, you could use an app. There is the Auto Redial | call timer app for Samsung and Android devices which can be found and downloaded in the Google Play Store. This app will allow you to auto redial, fast redial and also auto hang up with the option of adding a hang up timer, that stops the call if it isn't answered after a given time. Unfortunately, if you are an iPhone user there doesn't appear to be a well reviewed iPhone redial app. 

Is there an auto redial feature on iPhone?

There isn't a built in auto redial feature on iOS. The quickest way to redial a number is press the green call button on your phone. This will show you the last number that you called, all you need to do is press the green call button again and you will start making a call. Alternatively, go into the Recents in your phone and then tap on the last number that you called to redial it. 

How to enable auto redial on Samsung phones?

Whilst this feature is no longer supported on recent models of Samsung phone, if you are using an older device then it should still work. In this article we will show you how to enable auto redial on your device, and if that doesn't work, we will show you an alternate, albeit less convenient method. 

 

  • From the Home Screen, head to Applications > Settings > Call Settings > Voice calls.
  • Check Auto redial.

Alternate method

If your device no longer has the Auto redial feature in the settings, then an alternative method is as follows:

  • When you tap the Phone button on the dialler it will show the last number that was dialled.
  • If you double tap the phone button, it will redial the previous caller. 

Whilst this is not nearly as practical as the auto redial feature, it should still save you some time.
