WHY!? phone app goes straight to Dial?
« on: December 02, 2013, 12:56:08 PM »
Hi peoples. Can I change what happens when I press the phone button? It always goes straight to the dial page but this isn't the 1980's I don't memories numbers any more. I know it's only one press to go to favourites or call logs but can't we just go straight to one of them. Really annoying.

You are right, I tried to do this and although I could re-order the tabs, I couldn't get the Phone app to open to contacts or call logs, etc.

BUT... I discovered this cool thing:

Now usually, from the dialer, you dial numbers, right?  Well, I tried "typing" a contact name, and wow, it works!

For example, pretend I am in your contacts as Klotar Somebody.  So you type K-L-O (5-5-6) and BANG, I am there to select as a contact to dial.  If there is more than one contact that contains the letters K-L-O, you can either narrow it down or select what shows up so far and there is a list to choose from.

I realize this might not be what you are looking for but I'm sorta pleased I stumbled upon this.  :)

Interesting, Thanks for the tip, nice one. I discovered I could just swipe the whole page to the next group so actually it's not a big deal. (Actually I just forgot I could do that...Duh) So being able to change the order in the settings is handy. Still, you should be able to specify it.

Thanks
