    Stumbled on Neat Phone Trick

    Advertisement



    In Stinsondog's 8800 tips he tells how you can hold the send key while in phone mode, and your contact list is displayed. You can start typing contact names and quickly get to the person you want. It's more convenient than going to the Menu and selecting "Call from Address Book".

    Thanks to my stubby fingers, I accidently found another way to dial. From the phone menu hit the ALT button, then the first few letters of the contact you're looking for. The contacts will still display, but now under each contact when you scroll to it is a list of their numbers. Roll to the one you want, and click the trackball to call.

    I found this when I was trying out the prebeta 4.2 for my 8700. It's a very convenient feature for quick dialing with one hand. Rather than finding the address book, etc..
    I hope this is in the shortcuts list.

    I love this addition to the 4.2 OS on the 8700. I have found that you don't have to hit the alt button. Once the software figures out you aren't typing a number to call it converts everything to letters automatically.

    this is an excellent find!

    clear explanation, but definitely something to play with a bit to become familiar with.

    now if i only used my 'berry for voice calls...
