Display phone numbers when dialing people on your contact list

When dialing people from your log list that exists on your contact list, you can't see the number that is being dialed. Once it is dialing, you can't even tell if it is the work number or the cell number that is being dialed.

 

Is there a way that you could have the phone number displayed along with the name of the person?

 

Thanks

Afi

Re: Display phone numbers when dialing people on your contact list

aaflatooni, when viewing your CALL LOG list, you should be seeing a the contacts name on one line, and on the second line something such as "Home: (000)000-000" or work, mobile, etc.

 

This is from touching the Phone app icon > Calls

Re: Display phone numbers when dialing people on your contact list

That would be good option but instead I am seeing the Name on the top line and the bottom line would show "Work" and doesn't show any numbers.

 

Further when I am dialing the person, it doesn't show the number at the time that it is dialing it. So when it is dialing also, it only displays the name on top and "Work" at the bottom without the number.

hmm... please swipe down from the top bezel to look at your Settings > Security > Encryption and see if you have Device Encryption set to ON?

The security is set to OFF. Would the phone numbers display if I have security to ON?

Please confirm.

Re: Display phone numbers when dialing people on your contact list

No, mine is set to off as well... and I thought if it migth have been set to ON, they would not display.

 

So that is not it.

 

Let me ask around... phone number shows on mine.

It doesn't show it on the Q10. I just checked it with another person with Q10 and the phone numbers aren't displayed.

Re: Display phone numbers when dialing people on your contact list

Is there any plans to fix this in the future software changes?

 

It is further annoying because the phone number doesn't display when you are dialing either.

 

The OS developers should focus on responsive design. Every action would trigger a display change so that the user knows that something is happening. The change shouldn't happen after a delay.
