Re: quick dial through the keyboard

For now, open the phone app > swiped down from the top and setup your keyboard quick keys. Those are available while in the Phone application.

 

I have been told quicker speed dialing from the homescreen with keyboard shortcuts is coming in an upgrade.

Re: quick dial through the keyboard

Yes, it does. You just need to follow the instructions.

 

Add a contact to your keyboard speed dial list

  1. In the Phone app, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap The Settings icon > Keypress Speed Dial.
  3. Press the key on your keyboard that you want to associate with the contact.
  4. Tap the contact that you want to associate with the key on your keyboard.
After you finish: To call a contact from your keyboard speed dial list, in the Phone app, tap The Dialpad icon. Press and hold the key that you associated with the contact.

Correct, that point nothing should happen, the directions don't state anything should happen. It just "connects" that keyboard press to be the speed dial for that entry.

Re: quick dial through the keyboard

For me the following works

3. Now you see the "Speed Dial Shortcuts" on the screen (A, B, C, D, E....). Tap the letter you want ON THE SCREEN.
4. On the "Select Number" screen, choose the contact you want to assign.

This works for me.
