HTC Droid Eris :: Speed Dial For Same Contact Different Number
Mar 25, 2010
While using the speed dial widget that comes with the Eris, is there a way to put two contacts of the same person in, but with different numbers?For example,I want both my fiance's cell and his work number in those 9 slots, but I can only choose one as the default and if I go to add him in another slot, he isn't even available as a choice under my People.I can make him a wholly separate contact for his work info obviously, but I was just wondering if there was a sleeker way?
On the screen where you can one touch to call a favorite friend, how do you delete a friend? I don't want to delete them off my phone, just the one touch screen. When I long press it lights up the whole "post it" with all the friends and wants to remove all of them.
Is there ANY way to assign a # on the dial pad to speed dial a contact? I want to do a long press on a number say#3 and it will auto dial the contact assigned to it. I cant figure it out. If I long hold a number it just says NO SPEED DIAL ENTRY. This is driving me NUTS. I have The Epic BTW.
call me stupid. I could not for the life of me figure out how to remove the preset Customer Service Speed Dial number 2. I would like to set #2 as someone else. Also are we only allowed 9 spots for speed dial on android phones?
Does anyone know how to get the number "1" to be your voicemail speed dial? I've done the 2.1 update, and saved the *86pXXXX# as the password, but the dialer won't got to voicemail when I actually press "1" on the dial pad. Does anyone have a fix for this?
has anyone noticed that post OTA the speed dial no longer works? i had speed dials set up before the update and they worked fine. after the update whenever i try to set speed dials they just don't stick. everything seems to work fine, but after i hit save they just don't register.
How do i dial a contact or unsaved number that i got a text from with Google voice with out having to go to my voicemail, is there a simple way to select a contact and simply hit 'dial with Google' or something along those lines?
I read somewhere here I believe, although I can't find it now. That there is a way to make the phone ask for confirmation before you dial the number? Specifically I am inadvertantly dialing my favorites, I would like the phone to ask before dialing.
It is my first smartphone. I put in all my contacts manually so that I could get the feel of the phone and learn the basics. On all my previous stupid phones, the contact phone number automatically formated to 901-555-1212. With the Eris it is 9015551212. Anyway to change this? I have searched other threads with the same question but no one ever replies. I have search the net with no luck. Should I just take it that there is no way to automatically change this. I have gone through and put in the extra ticks between the numbers manually but that is a pain in the arse.
I am not sure if this came up in one of the topics, but I may have missed it.
For the past week, I noticed some of my contact priority number was defaulting to the number I least call. This morning, while trying to figure how to make priority changes, I noticed it was due to linking it to facebook.
I linked my wife's info with her facebook and the priority number (mobile) pushed it to her home number information she has on her facebook account. So instead of me just going to click on my wife's name or say a command to call wife, I have to scroll to find the number I want to call.
I there a fix for this to let us set the priorities?
I have been trying out new ROM's and it's been fun. Here is my biggest headache with doing this. I have about 10 contacts that are Direct Dial (speed dial to the rest of the world). What I do is put them in a folder as a shortcut to prevent accidental dialing. But I have to constantly redo this set up. Is there a way to save a folder and it's contents, such as direct dial numbers, to my sd card and bring it back with each new ROM or launcher? Starred folder doesn't work for me as it's more clicking when I am driving. The app Direct Dial still takes several clicks.
When I tried to activate my phone, it wouldn't work. So I called Verizon from my landline and I told them and they had me activate it manually. They had me type in some random string of numbers to the phone dial pad and it took me to a screen where I set my phone's ID and other stuff manually (that the activation call would do automatically). I'm just curious as to what's in here. Does anyone remember the number? I can't remember it for the love of me and it's not in my call log.
I was editing one of my contacts and finally found speed dial settings. However, when I went to another contact I couldn't find the option again. Anyone know how to set speed dials? I know it has th voice dialer but I'd rather just tap a number.
How do you reprogram #1 on keypad for speed dial (voicemail) I transfered data from another phone and it changed the number from my phone number to the old phone number. Searched and and cant find where its stored or anyway to change it. I now dial the person with my old number everytime i hit #1
