I agree dexic’s suggestion.
This is less for the last dialed numbers because this already works perfect, but more for easy access to important numbers, even if not used in the last few days.
E.g. Mother, husband, children, doctor,…
It should better be a 4th tab to the existing 3 (keyboard, history, persons), named e.g. Quick or similar. There a page with 10 names and to each name a phone- and a SMS icon, that acts immediately on fingertap, or only asks what SIM card to use in double SIM card phones.
Thats my idea & suggestion.
edit: just now I checked, what is possible in the ‘persons’ (or phonebook) tab and found a solution, maybe also satisfying dexic’s wishes:
In the phonebook:
enter an entry you want to have a shortcut for,
in the upper right corner is an asterisk. Tap this asterisk, it will turn white.
This entry appears now in the phonebook as shortcut inside a sqare below
the search line and above the last dialed numbers and the alphabetic list.
edit: In the German translation the phonebook tab is named ‘Personen’, this is engl. persons. I consider this as an unlucky translation, because 1. it is a well equipped database and 2. it can also contain a company or business, a shop or an organisation,…
I suggest ‘Kontakte’ or ‘Telefonbuch’ for the German translation.
edit: I tried to suggest this in translate.sailfish.org, but I couldn’t find where it is! Please can someone tell me?
