    Default HTC One Phone Dialler Favorites

    Maybe I'm missing something but in the stock dialer with the HTC One I have created some favourites. When I click on the favourite, I want it to dial their mobile number. I have set the default action to "call mobile" but each time I tap the favourite it just brings me to a profile card with multiple numbers / email address/ birthday etc.

    I dont want to speed dial. Hope someone can help, this is driving me nuts !

    You have to long press and then the option comes up where you can dial. I don't think it will just automatically dial. I could be wrong though but not my experience.

    I'm a bit bummed that it won't just automatically dial the number. I want it to be a one-touch operation.

    A workaround is to create a page or folder of "Direct Dial" which is in the shortcut widgets. That allows you to assign a single number. Not perfect... but oh well.

    Download a different dialer or contact app.

    Long press the contact on the favorites page then select "set default action" from there you can set the action to be whatever you desire including a one press dial.

    You could also set speed dials old school. Assigned by long pressing a number on dial pad.

    I've tried that and it doesn't seem to do anything. After I've tried setting that, when I look at the contact detail, under "default action" it shows 'call'...but when I select that contact from contacts or favorites, it still just brings up the contact details page for that contact and I have to press the phone number to get it to dial. So I can't figure out how to actually trigger that default action??

    Same here. Seems a bug.

    It could be a bug, but I always chalked it up to a contact with more than one phone number prompting the dialer to confirm with you first which number you wanted to call. You should be able to set a dedicated number for one-touch dialing as previous stated.

    That would be OK, I guess, but it doesn't call contacts with a single number either. It would appear that the default action has some purpose, but isn't being activated by clicking a contact. What purpose would the defualt action be if not for purposes of activating when the contact is clicked?

    I didn't have any success using favorites to auto dial either. But I was able to set a Quick Dial shortcut on a home screen to work.

    I went ahead and installed the free Contacts+ and Dialer+...and so far, they are exceeding my expectations! All of the weaknesses in the stock dialer and contacts are remedied with these two apps. Note that you can't use Dialer+ alone... it requires Contacts+ to be installed). There is a capability in Contacts+ plus for text messaging as well, but I disabled that - just didn't see the point. But there are a ton of options for tweaking how these apps work, and like I said, so far so good.

    Yeah that seems to be a bug in Sense 5.0 on The One.

    Confirming that this is a bug. Tried it many different ways, but default action on the contacts widget is broken. Any workarounds?

    My solution to this was using Action Launcher. I made a phone shortcut in my dock, then transformed it into a cover with direct dial widgets. Tap the icon for the dialer, swipe up or down for the list of quick direct dial contacts. Works awesome.
