dialing from photo icons

does  OS7 have an option for displaying a screen full of contact photos that you can select to dial the person? I've had this on other smartphones but can't see how to do it on my OS7 torch. It's like speed dial with pictures.

 

any thoughts?

Re: dialing from photo icons

Thanks for that. What a shame the Blackberry OS doesn't include it. I seem to remember it was a basic feature on windows mobile. Still, 99c won't break the bank...

 

Maybe Blackberry read these posts? They need to step it up a bit if they are going to compete!

Re: dialing from photo icons

BlackBerry is the largest selling smartphone in Europe, Middle East, Indonesia, and India. Something like 75% of the worlds population base.

 

I think they are competing.

 

Anyway, third party apps like that are common on ALL mobile platforms (yes on the IdiotPhone as well.

You get standard tires on your car when you buy it. You want off-road muidders, you buy them yourself.

 

Good luck.

Re: dialing from photo icons

I am committed to Blackberry - I even bought shares. But judging by the shares they are not competing at all well at the moment.

I understand your comment about thrid party apps but this was something I had on my last windows phone about 4 years ago.
