Default "Dial from home screen" option missing

Please Login to Remove!

I want to turn this off so I can use shortcut keys. I go into phone > options > general options and there is no option to turn this off.

Any idea why this would be missing? Is the option somewhere else now?

4.1.0.268 on a VZW 7130e.

thanks.

I don't think the 7130 allows using shortcuts from the home screen.

Also upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1 you loose the option to search for names within the phone book. Now you have to go to the address book, that sucks!!

On a 71xx just press and hold the green button.. It takes you to the address book and you can search quickly there.

I said to myself, "green button? I don't have a green button?" Then I realized I was posting in a 7100 thread, and I have the 7250, whoops. LOL sorry guys. Have a great day.
