    Just switched from a PalmPre+ and am still trying to learn about ICS on my Droid4 but ran into something I can not seem to find a solution for:

    I have several conference call contacts that share the same access number and I keep their unique access ID as part of the contact name so that I can type it in when prompted (once the call connects and the contact name is still visible on the dialer pad).
    e.g.
    "Adam's conference call code 12345678"
    Work 1-800-555-1212
    "Betty's conference call code 87654321"
    Work 1-800-555-1212
    "Charlie's conference call code 54637281"
    Work 1-800-555-1212

    however when manually choosing to dial from Betty's contact list, the android dialer ends up showing "Adam's conference 12345678".
    is there a way to "disable the phone# look up when picking from the contact" which ends up displaying the first contact name it encounters in the alphabetically sorted list?
    Thanks for any pointers

    How long do you have to wait before entering the code?

    You could have the phone number be 1-XXX-XXX-XXXXpppppppp12345678 and that should be different enough

    I was searching for the same thing for my GS3 and found this solution:
    Christopher Souvey's Blog Blog Archive Android Advice: Shared Home Phone Numbers - "Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."

    Note my comment there about storing the contact on the PHONE, those get searched first.
