keyboard shortcuts

Hi. Does anyone know how to set up speed dial on the Q10? Just wasted half a day on it.

Re: keyboard shortcuts

Waste no more time, here's your solution!

Press the phone icon then swipe down from the top and select Settings. Select Keypress Speed Dial, select a letter then select a contact's number. Enter it and you're all set.


I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy

Re: keyboard shortcuts

Thanks for taking the time to reply, Bill.
This is what I've been trying to do but when I press the letter to add the contact the field area where the letter is turns blue but no contacts appear to add.

Re: keyboard shortcuts

Just to be clearer, when the letter area turns blue, where are the contacts? No option to add a contact appears, however a do have contacts in my contacts list.

Re: keyboard shortcuts

Sorry. I was just making it clear that there are contacts in the phone. No options to add a speed dial for them. My other phone used to prompt me if I held the key down for a few seconds. I've tried doing it following the instructions but get as far as the list of letters ( A-Z) but when I press say, 'H' for example for 'Home', it highlights blue but that's it. How do I put the contact in?

Re: keyboard shortcuts

Like BillJ said with a slight adjustment:

 

Open the phone app

Swipe down from the top to Settings > Key Press Speed Dial.

ON THE SCREEN, touch the letter you want to add the speed dial to.

Now your contacts will appear.
