    T9 Dialing

    Just got my Droid today an I love it. Installed Touchdown and everything is working almost exactly how I want it.

    My only gripe is I use this for work and have hundreds of contacts, on my WinMo phone I could dial by name on the dial pad to easily and quickly dial a contact. I looked in the marketplace and the only apps listed say they are not compatible with 2.0

    Does anyone know of an app or a built-in way to make this happen?

    Motorola Droid Forum (Phone Scoop)

    just found this
    "does anyone know how to use T9 dialing on this droid? the HTC Eris works great if I want to call mike I can dial 645 and any contact with that combination comes up. I've tried superdial and easy dial pro but the digits are smaller in those 2 apps which make them harder to use."

    I just installed both that he says but I would like something that builds right in

    I think I found something that will work even better..Voice Dialing. I had a thought maybe the reason they don't put in T9 is because it's the old way of doing it and Voice Dialing works better.

    I made a shortcut so I'm going to try this out and see if this works, and maybe then T9 dialing will become just a bad habit from an outdated smartphone

    I had the same issue getting adjusted to the Droid. I created a few folders on my home screen with direct dial contacts in them (family folder, work folder, etc). All I have to do is open the folder and click the contact to connect. For the hundreds of other contacts that I don't call as often, I just hit the search button (magnifying glass) on the phone and start typing in a name.

    Not sure what you mean when you say "I made a shortcut..."

    You do realize that long pressing on the magnifying glass icon on the phone will bring up a voice search box with a mic, and speaking "Call Mike Jones" will dial Mike Jones?

    No I didn't know that, I thought that was for searching the phone.

    Thanks for the tip.
