I would like to know if there is a way to dial a number from the keypad using names. I know that if I just start typing the name it will show up but my problem gets to be when I try to put in a name like "Sam's" or I type in a name that has a space in the name. Is there a way to get the name by typing some sort of wildcard or even just entering a "space"?

Yup, install exDialer

I just tried it and typed in "JOHN" and it brought up all of my contacts with 'JOHN' as part of their name and their contact picture, just click on the appropriate item and you are good to go.

* ExDialer - Dialer & Contacts - One I use


I had never thought to try that before, that is a neat feature that I will be making use of.

I don't think ExDialer does what I want. The normal dialer will allow putting in names but what it does not have a "wild card" capability. Like I want to dial Sam's and after I enter the "s" "a" "m" I have many matches so I would like to enter a wild card for the " ' " and then a " s" so that the proper name shows.
