I'm not a big phone user as I'd prefer to email or BBM my contacts, but having speed dials for my favorites does come in handy.

You can add as many as you want (although it gets messy after a while) and they'll appear in the phone app with their contact picture. Keep reading to see just how easy it is to add a speed dial for a contact on BlackBerry 10.
- Tap the Phone icon
- Here you will see the recent calls list. On top you can tap the boxes that say Add Number to add your first two speed dials
- Tap Add Number, then choose the contact you'd like to add
After the first two slots are filled, you'll notice there are no boxes showing for more numbers. Not to worry because you can still add contacts.
- Tap Contacts
- Tap the contact you want to add, then tap and hold on the number you want to add to speed dial. When the action menu appears, tap the star icon and they will be added to your speed dial list. Repeat this for additional contacts.
When you're done, you'll see all your new speed dials listed on top of your calls screen. Just tap to dial the contact.
