    On my old phone I could set up freq. called #'s with a speed dial # i.e. if I dial # 3 it would call one of my kids.
    How do I set thatup on the Droid?

    This might not be the solution you're looking for, but you can add frequent contacts to your "Favorites". Then when you go into phone mode, click "Favorites" on the top and they'll be in there.

    Understood.
    But this phone should certainly be capable of speed dial if old "dumbphones" are!

    Long press on home screen
    shortcuts
    direct dial
    choose your contact and which number

    Boom, you have a one press shortcut that will speed dial that contact.

    Yeah I use one of my screens as a launch for favorite text and call people, it's a pretty slick feature.

    I can't seem to get this to work on my droid. i can go to menu > add > shortcuts > direct dial and it lets me put an shortcut on the home screen for each number i choose but that's not really what i wanted to do. How can i remove shortcuts or move them to a new location on my home screen? thanks

    Press and hold on the direct dial number you want to move. It should grab it then move it to wherever you want. Also note that the window shade at the bottom will change to a trash can to drag it there and delete the shortcut.

    To move it to another screen (left or right) go to the edge and kind of hover there it will move over.

    Click and hold on an empty portion of your main screen, should pop up "Shortcuts" "Widgets" blah blah.

    Click Shortcuts then Direct Dial and pick your contact.

    Yes, there is a way to set up a short cut, and yes there are speed dial apps.

    But the fact is, you can press and hold "1" and dial voicemail, so surely there must be a way to program the other keys to dial the number of your choice.

    Has anyone figured this out?

    How can you add other numbers after the phone number like password, or extension number, etc. Had this on my BB. Anybody figure this out? Thanks.

    Here's my way....

    Use application dock widget (it takes a whole row, so clear so space then you can move it)

    Use which ever short cut you want for our contact (i use contact, cause then i have options for call, text, email)

    put the short cut on desktop, then drag to application dock.

    You can put a whole bunch in the application dock, but just depends how much you want to scroll. (Just gently swipe left/right to scroll through contacts

    You can now call, text, email, with 1 swipe and 2 clicks

    You can also put apps in here, and use multiple application docks!!

    You an move the app dock once you have it as you like by clicking and holding the left edge of the dock..took my forever to 'accidently' figure this out...

    I agree and want the same thing. I still like the original number speed dial that most phones have the best. Need a update or app for it.

    No but I don't get why people want this. How is going into the phone app any faster than a direct dial icon? I guess I'm just threadcrapping...

    In any case, I bet there will be an app if there isn't one already. That's one great thing about Android.
