speed dial on Z10

I have added few names on the speed dial by tap the star icon. I cannot tell where is the list of the speed dials I assigned; the help menu on BB says that the list will appear at the top of the screen, but I do not see it and there is no indication next to the names I assigned speed dial to...

 

I am new to BB Z10 and would appreciate any help

 

Cheers

Re: speed dial on Z10

Tapping on the star icon doesn't add a contact to your speed dial list, it only makes that contact a Favorite.  The next step is to click on that contact (and the rest of this is from memory because I don't have access to my phone presently) then press the menu dots in the lower right corner of that contact's info.  From there you can add them to your speed dial list, which will place them at the top of your contacts' list.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  :smileyhappy:

Re: speed dial on Z10

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I have the phone in front of me and when I tap the contact name, I see that there is a star next to the name. When I tap the 3 vertical dots oat the bottom right corner, I get "edit", "add as favorite", "links", "invite to meeting" and "share contact"... There is no speed dial option.... the last item is delete !! is speed dial something I have to set up ?

 

Thank you once again

Re: speed dial on Z10

Speed dials will be on your Calls tab in the Phone app.  You can add the first two by pressing one of the Add Number boxes next to the voicemail icon.  This will take you to the contact list where you can select the person/number you want to add. 

 

Once these have been added you can add additional numbers to your speed dial in one of two ways.  First is to go to the Contacts section of the Phone app and tap on the person you want to add.  Then long press on the number and select the * from the side menu.  The other way is by long pressing on a number in call log.  Then press the * in the side menu

Re: speed dial on Z10

Besides the two numbers in the calls tab, can we add any more there? the remaining seem to be added as favorites in the contacts but are not visible as speed dial in the calls screen
