    Stop calling Contacts

    How do I make it so when I click on a contacts name in my phone book it doesn't call them

    Because when I used to click on contact names it would open up their contact info.

    I keep accidentally calling people when I'm going through my contacts and I need to stop

    Does anyone know of a setting or a fix to stop this?

    Am I missing something? when I open my contacts and scroll to a name. if I click on it, it shows me their contact info. This not what we are talking about? the only way for me to dial is to either hit the bb button then call or highlight the name then press the send key.

    it depends on how many numbers you have saved if only one it will just call whe you click on them

    just tried. mine shows the name and below it the number. does not dial. odd. Tried with single contact number and various contact numbers.

    Makes me think its a setting somewhere.

    I've searched but to be honest I cant remember a time where it automatically dialed from contacts. I have always been able to just click the contact icon and look through my contacts and just click. no matter how many contact numbers it had it would always just show the contact info. I'll keep looking though. has to be a way

    lets do this broken where are you clicking on your contacts name? are you clicking the contacts icon and then from there? because I get the same results you do when I use the contacts app.


    and to keep here are you (i am guessing cause this is what you said in the first post) you are opening the phone app and then usiing the contacts tab on the end?

    zactly! I click the contact icon then the contact. if I click phone then the contact tab then the contact it dials, but isnt that the way its supposed to be? If I am in the phone app isnt it expecting that I wanna make a call? I have my default phone view to call log. my most used contacts are there then i just click and it dials. usually if I want to get info I just use the contacts app. to be honest except for this time I cant tell you the last time I looked at my contacts through the phone app.

    I think your right. If I open the contacts from the icon and click one I get the details. However if I open the phone then choose contacts and click one it calls.

    actually the contact tab in the phone app used to do the same thing as the contact app, i never used the contact app until that changed i think right after .148.

    Well then thats where the confusion in my part came in. I guess Keep will have to use the contact app so he wont dial out. sorry for the false hope!

    Something that I think is worth mentioning and it might have already. As I was researching info on this I went into my Loader folder to look at the manual. Anybody notice that its a manual for the 9550/9520?? I have seen this on many of the OS5 leaks, but on the Official?


    BTW, dont tell anybody that I went to look at the manual, lol.
