    Is there a quicker way?

    Right now I can either click the phone icon at the bottom or the phone app if you want to call it an app. Then there are two animations that take place, the screen moves to the right and opens the phone which then maximizes. After all that I have to tap the dialer section before I can make an call.


    Getting to the dialer numbers must have a quicker way anyone?

    I believe one of the updates in OS 10.1 is that the phone app loads more quickly. That should save you from waiting through those dreadful seconds.

    Be a nice addition to Phone's Settings to choose your own default start screen, so someone like OP could select Dial Pad as the initial view.

    This is how you CB10, son!

    I don't know if this Is for 10.2 or you can do this for current OS:

    - instead of tapping the phone icon, tap the universal search icon

    - start inputting the phone nunber


    Getting to the dial ad takes too long-img_00000074.png

    Yes this would be very nice especially if you need to dial numbers quickly.

    My biggest disappointment with the z10 is that it is yet another pocket tablet with a phone app. The bb7 phones were the last of the phone first devices.

    I would be a lot happier If i could open the dial pad directly and then use normal speed dials that I have been using for years.

    Only issue with this "trick" is that you are using minuscule buttons that weren't meant for dialing numbers. I'm really hoping the 10.1 updates brings some noticeable improvement for the phone app as we've been hearing.
