Default Swipe to call

Does anyone know where the swipe to call setting is, or if they got rid of it in the latest update? I'm on Verizon btw.

I had the ability to swipe on text thread and have it call the contact until a couple days ago.

Mine is still functioning, slide right to call, left to text from text or contacts. Touchwiz on latest verizon multi screen update. Never seen any settings for that though.

I don't know where it is but it started working again after 3 reboots. It seems more touchy though after the latest update.

It's still there, just hard to do for some reason now. I have to start just inside (to the right) of the contracts icon for it to work. And then it doesn't always work.

I've been on 4.1.2 since I got the phone, and swipe to call has always been harder to do than it was on my previous Galaxy S running Gingerbread. It often seems more reliable and quicker just to select the contact and hit the dial option.

Thanks for pointing this out. I was starting the swipe on the icon and it wasn't working.

I was just about to search for this topic. I thought it was gone too, but starting the swipe just to the right of the icon is working for me too. Thanks!

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT I FIGURED IT OUT!!! When you swipe from the left it will say message but dont let go and swipe to the right. So push down swipe to the left when it says message dont pick up ur finger to the right.
