    On the S3 one could just use the dialer and type the name/number to call a contact. Eg. Typing 563 would bring up Joe(5 = j, 6 = o and, 3 = e). That was a very fast way of calling a contact which I miss. So I want to know what is the fastest way of calling someone on the Z10. It would help me. Thanks.

    Click on the Search magnifying glass on the bottom and type "Call John Smith" to make a phone call or "Text John Smith" to send a text message. The other way is to hold down the center media key and activate voice control.

    You may not even have to type "call" or "text" and it brings up their contact card from which you can call that person.

    So...
    1) open phone app, swipe in keyboard and start typing [name]. > Call.
    2) open keyboard/search from homescreen and type "call [name]". > Call.
    3) use voice control "call [name] [device]". > Call.

    Wow I didn't know about the Search "Call John Smith" thing. That's awesome. I'll be using that for non speed dial contacts from now on.

    The voice command is good but it doesn't work sometimes.

    I didn't know this "Call ****" " option in search. I find it very useful. don't require to go to contact or phone screen and then searching for that person. I was wondering why there is no "search" in call screen, probably, my be after this facility, I may not even need.

    Another example of BlackBerry's failure to highlight a great feature... even to those that have had the device for months. Instant action shortcuts are even more convenient on Q10, my wife loves the feature on hers!

    You're right. This should have been common knowledge at least for the people using the phone.
