Is there a way to disable the Slide function to call/Message contacts in Phone on Lollipop 5.1.1?

My phone specs: SM-G925F Android Lollipop 5.1.1

Thanks in advance!

  • Have you tried opening dialer then select Menu -> Settings -> Contacts -> uncheck "Swipe to call or send message"? Mar 29, 2016 at 6:35
  • Wow, I'm such an idiot. Thank you so much, Aaron Gillion!

There's a hidden option on the newer Samsung devices.

Open Dialer, then select Menu -> Settings -> Contacts then uncheck Swipe to call or send message.

Hope this helps,
