Angry How to dial?

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone tell me if there is a way to set my BlackBerry so that i can just pick it up and dial rather than going into the phone application?
When I first got my blackberry I could, but then I got a notice about a software update and after the update I couldn't anymore... incredibly frustrating. Anyone know how to get it back to pick and dial like any phone should be able to do?

Doing this disables keyboard shortcuts like "L" for Calendar, "C" for Contacts, etc. It's either-or.

I never use the short cut keys anyhow... the only problem now, which I suppose I should have mentioned is that it's a 9330 - I don't have "phone options" in my options menu. Any idea how I change it on the 9330?

How about if you open the Phone screen (press green phone button) and press the BB Menu key > General Options > Dial From Home Screen > blah, blah.....

It is crazy that some 'simple' functions are so difficult to execute on a BB
