    Anyone know of a way to change the physical Talk Button to continue to open the dialing app but instead start on either (Contact) Favorites or the Dial-pad tabs?

    Or better yet is there a way to have it open something else, like a different dialer app?

    I am not aware of other dialer apps, but if it works like other types of apps, you have to wipe the dialer's settings to make the phone "forget" your default, then you get a choice of which you want next time you invoke it.

    Like I said, I've never tried this, but that's how it works with Launchers etc.

    I solved my answer the next day after doing even more hunting...

    I installed the Dialer One app.

    Then I hit my physical phone button and it asked me which dialer app to use (the stock one or Dialer one). I picked Dialer One. Problem solved. I got speed dials now and Dialer One's default tab starts at the dialer pad.
