I use the “favouriting” function for 40 contacts that I use frequently. And then there is family whom you call all the time.
I’d like to have those few contacts directly on my numbers, so I don’t have to jump around all the rest of my favourites -or- rename contacts with weird stuff like 1, 2, 3, symbols and what else and then jump over those to get to my other favourites.
In a car, this is faster, easier and better to control - than 40 favourites of my 1659 contacts…
I imagine the settings of the phone app to make it possible to open up the dialer, press and hold one of the numbers and get the contact I saved on it. -AND- have vanity search similar to t9. The buttons are much bigger and if you are using the device for work, you will find yourself stuck in the dialer screen quite often.
