Default Speed Dial Help

Please Login to Remove!

I need help finding a quicker way to acccess my speed dial list if there is one? Currently I have to perform 2-3 actions to get to my speed dial list and from what I can tell there is no shortcut. It's one thing if you've memorized what numbers are assigned to each speed dial key, but that's not realistic. What am I missing? What's the quickest way to see the list and to dial one of the numbers?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

To see the list: click on the Phone/Call Log icon -> press the Menu button -> Press CV button twice --> Press Enter button. That's the fastest way.

The fastest way I've found on mine is to type in the name I have under the address book. As I type it, it lists the possible names and narrows it down as I type. I don't know if the 8100 can do it the same way as mine, but it (so far) my favorite way.

Thanks for the the replies.

This makes no sense to me. If you have to type or perform 2-3 clicks to get to the list, what is the point?

On my old Treo I could assign a button on the screen to each frequently dialed number/contact and all I had to do was touch the screen to dial the number.

Typing or clicking 2-3xs is a hassle when you are driving or otherwise preoccupied. It's one thing if the number you want is in your call log, but if not, it is a pain to retrieve. I don't get why they don't give you the ability to use one of the shortcut keys to access the list?

Edit: I should read more carefully. Sorry.
