Default Call Log question

Please Login to Remove!

The "native" call log function doesn't keep enough calls for my needs. I would like to use it to overcome having the extra step of having to select "call from address book" when I need to make a call. My question is: Is there another way to increase the length of the log or is there a better phone application?

I appreciate your insight on this

Use the Dial by Name function in the Phone App. Press and Hold slightly the Green Phone Key/Button, start typing the name, with each letter the list of contacts will decrease. Keep typing until you see the name you want, then scroll to the name and press the Phone button. Done, at least if the number you want to dial is in your Address Book.

Hope this Helps

How awesome! I consider myself a relatively advanced user but I never knew about this. It works great, thanks!
