    Default Did the dialer in ICS ditch predictive text?

    I just noticed that my Nexus wont let me punch in some numbers to pull up a contact and call them. This worked fine on my Froyo and Gingerbread phones, wasn't this a stock Android feature or did mine break somehow?

    That's mainly a sense feature. You can download Dialer One for free and it has that capability. It's not native to ICS.

    This was absolutely a feature of GB on my (non-Sense) Droid X and I miss it! There is a contact search in the ICS dialer that works similarly, but I agree that it was way more convenient straight from the dial pad.

    Hello Google? Please put this critical phone feature back!

    Same here, my last two phones were TouchWiz and they had it too. Really sad to see this convenient feature missing from ICS

    Probably won't happen. This has been missing from Stock Android since inception. The OG didn't have the ability, so I doubt Google will bother with it since they've had three years to implement something so simple. I really miss this functionality from my Incredible. I hope someone can take the ICS dialer and modify it with this function instead of having to go to something like Dialer One. I used Dialer One a when I first got the OG and while it works well, it looks cheap and crappy. If I had any programing ability I would take the ICS dialer and modify it myself, but unfortunately I don't.

    I put my quick dial and quick text widgets behind my msg and phone widgets. They don't take up real estate and I can click twice to any of my speed dial people. If you wanted quicker access to the msg and phone widgets you could put them in an open spot too.

    I'm always weary my phone will dial on its own if the phone icon was just up front.

    I wanted to follow up that Dialer One has been pretty good. OK! It's not the prettiest thing but I am glad to give up a cool font for being to dial people by name and number. Anyone else use a dialer that they recommend?

    That would be motoblur. It was never a stock feature, google never took it away because they never included it in the first place.

    The search button in the dialer works pretty well.

    This feature was recently added to CyanogenMod - it works quite well in the stock dialer. A good option for the root-inclined.

    I put a folder of direct dials as a makeshift dialer (and I have one for direct texting).

    I do miss predictive dialing though.

    Oddly, if you hold down the 1 button it dials your voicemail, wtf.

    Either Google added it in 4.0.3 or it's part of GummyNex because I have the predictive dialing on my phone.
