    Default How to get dial pad on opening phone

    When I open the phone app to make a call the app opens to the recent call screen. How do I get it to open at the dial pad screen?

    If you are using the recent update, 4.4.2, there will be an option in the bottom with several squares. That's the dialer app.

    Yes I know that, what I am looking to do is have the dialer be the default window when the app opens instead of the window that shows now which is the recent calls

    This is a new "feature" in kit kat. I think the only way to to get the dialer as the default is to install a different dialer from the play store.

    You could download a different dialer.

    I use Simple Dialer on one of my lock screens. Works great, push the Dialer button once, and it'll always open up that way.
