Default Fastest way to dial frequent phone numbers

Please Login to Remove!

I have 3 phone numbers that I dial constantly and need to shorten the number of keystrokes needed. Even speed dialing takes too long. I tried making a new folder (like "my favorites") to put on the home page but can't get the numbers in there.

The voice dialing isn't ideal. Is there a way to dial a phone number in one or two clicks?

Speed dial is only 2 keys not sure how much shorter you want it, Green Send key and press and hold speed dial assigned #. You are not going to find a 1 key solution.

Speed dial is your best options. 1/W might already be set to your voice mail. Best to start from 2/E. Setting up is simple. Just press and hold from the home screen. Select "YES" to assign a contact from your address book. Next time you press 2/E it dials the chosen number.

To change your speed dial list: Press Green Send Button / Menu Key and choose view speed dial list

Default thank you

I had forgotten about setting up the green key to access the keyboard instead of my contacts where it had been. This does give me 2 stroke access now.

Whoops sorry did not see you had a 9530 .

With my 8900 it is just one keystroke. TroyDBrown gave you the best advice!
