    Does anyone know if Dialer One is available for the X10, I can't seem to find it in the market. If not, is there another smart dialer you can recommend?

    On the XDA forum it appears that this and NubDial are for 2.? and above.

    It was suggested ThaiDial and SuperDial but I have no personal experience.

    I use Gesture Search to access my contacts but its pretty basic, just easier (and gimick-ier ) than the normal contacts list.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Rosered, I'll give those two a try. TBH I think it sucks that there's no smart dialer out of the box. It's an upgrade from a C905 and she'd gotten used to using it, if SE implement this on their dumbphones it's seems daft that they wouldn't incorporate it into their flagship smartphone.

    Try Phonebook 2.0, available free on the market.

    If I'm correct that smart dialer is using the dial pad and having it select your contacts based on the alphanumeric characters in the contact's name, Phonebook 2.0 has that capability.

    Off to try the above app but I have been using "Contact Widget ABC Dialer Light"

    It gives you you a widget with 6 contact pictures and you just tap a picture to call the person no 20 presses to call rubbish like the stock stuff. The widget also has a window that tells you how many texts you have, again just hit the symbol to be taken to your phones text message app and also a dial feature where you simply press the first letter of the persons name and it shows all contacts with that first letter then scroll to the one you want and its one press to dial.

    The paid version has a better search option and allows up to 12 contacts to be added to the desk top widget, my girlfriend has it on her Galaxy Portal and loves its simple one press dialling. It will be the first app I by when I set up an account.

    EDIT: The full app cost 79 US cents so I'm guessing it's around 50-60p

    Didn't see it suggested, but another good free choice is aContacts.

    It's a bit better from the smart dial standpoint, as entering part of a contact's number will find the contact (whereas with Phonebook 2.0 it only searches the entire phone number string).
