    App drawer->Widgets->Direct Dial.

    Can even throw all your direct dials in one folder, and bam - no need to even go to the dialer.
    fed123, jas o and bjs188 like this.

    That's definitely a way to sort of get the same result, but it's not really speed dial.

    How not? It's the same number of button presses, and there's no need to memorize who goes to what number when you can just see their picture

    You would need to load an alternate dialer app to get this feature.

    It is not there. Stock android has never had this. Annoying as hell. I have been using the direct dial widgets in a folder as well, but this should be part of the stock dialer. Really a fail here. I mean it is almost 2012 and Android can't put in speed dialing? There are work arounds but jeez, they shouldn't be needed ..

    I still loooooooove my Nexus though :-)

    One solution is you can download Touchpal Dialer from the market.

    I used to use speed dialing a lot too. But, I've started using folders for that. At first it took a bit of getting used too. But, I actually like it. I have one home screen that is only for folders with my most frequently used numbers. I have work and family right now. Then I go to the folder, pick the number I want and I'm off.

    I also use voice dialing quite a bit through my handsfree.

    I find it curious that the #1 Speed dials your voice mail, so it has to be there somewhere.

    If you're looking for a better speed dial, try out our app Sign. Instead of messing with folders and direct dial icons (which make it easy to accidentally call people), Sign is a gesture-based speed dial which lets you assign custom gesture to any contact. Then you can call or text them just by drawing the gesture.

    It also has some other features like:

    • Adjustable call confirmation
    • Haptic feedback letting you know if a gesture was recognized
    • No Call Log after a call is ended
    • Quick Startup lets you call or text anyone from the notification bar - even if other apps are open.


    The free version, Sign Lite, has a limit of three (3) contacts, but we are working to make that unlimited in the next update.
