It's not that it's "easier" to remember a name vs a number.....knowing the last 4 digits only requires that I "look at" the device to locate that first number, my thumb knows the numerical keyboard (much like using an adding machine by feel vs sight) and I can pop those numbers in and hit send almost automatically. And this is done with just my right thumb if I'm busy....If I have to type in the name, I have to do it visually since my memory doesn't recall the full keyboard...then scroll through maybe 2 work numbers, a cell number, home number etc...to choose the one I need.
I promise I'm not a dumb dora! And as one person mentioned....I realize it's not a treo! But if the ap was ever out there for any phone or pda, surely it was something others found useful as well.
As for using speed dial.....then I have to learn which 4 digits go to what assigned speed dial number....I'm right back where I was!
I'm simply trying NOT to recreate the wheel and find an ap that allowed the abbreviated dialing. I didn't want to have to relearn a "new way" if there was something out there that could replace what I'm used to!
I was just hoping there was an ap someone here knew of but I guess there isn't one!
Thanks for the suggestions anyway!
