    Need "ON-SCREEN" dialing!!!

    I wanted to know if anyone knows on an application that would bring up a virtual dialing pad and allow the use of the arrows to select numbers for dialing?

    The problem is that the numbers are so small that while driving it is difficult and basically dangerous to dial a number.

    If there is no application...maybe someone knows wht o to ask to create one!!!

    I've never tried it, but doesn't the voice recognition still do "digit dial"?

    never tried it either but it does give you an option to say a contact name or phone number
  9. Hmm....driving and feeling the keypad or looking at the screen.
    I'll take option A or Voice Dialing.

    Is it me? Maybe Im too much of a newbie here.
    1. Did we agree that there is or there is not Digital Dialing?
    2. What about the On-Screen dialing? How hard should this be?

    no there is not...your options are:
    1. voice dial
    2. feel for the numbers
    3. look at the device
  12. The built in Voice Dialing app has digit dialing in it.
    #2 probably doesn't have enough demand for someone to develop it.
    Scrolling/ moving the dpad to select a digit is cumbersome in my opinion.

    Give it a few weeks and you can type by feel. The Q1 has a handy "bump" in the middle of the number section just for this. Pretty sure the fancy pants Q9's have something simmilar.

    if your from NY or CT you shouldn't be worried about this because "cell phones are prohibited while operating a motor vehicle". there is more states I just don't know or care about them.
  16. NJ must have handsfree....but is that different than the NY law cause when I got my NY ticket I did have my BT in my ear and the cop said nothing.

    Hands Free in NY

    Hey, Tony...Bluetooth (or wired earphone) in NY is considered hands free. They don't want you holding the phone to your ear with your hand/neck/headband/etc...They are now talking about making a law against texting while driving (well, DUH!!!). Hard to believe they didn't do that years ago when they instituted the "hands free" law. (Hands Free law actually states : NY State Law requires you to by hands free when speaking on a mobile phone. (that is why earphones/blue tooth sets/ and through the speakers are ok...)

    Can you imagine a law that said NOTHING about texting while driving??New York, Yew York, it's a hell of a town...
  18. kind of like the old law in NJ that said if you see someone driving while on the phone you are to report it (before BT was invented). So um in NJ you have to break the law to report to someone breaking the law.
