    Hey all,

    Is there a dialer that will let me choose which number to ring from a contact directly (long press ?) ?

    Going to a contact to choose is getting annoying !

    AND SOLVED !!!

    Swipe your trackball to the right or left to view the various numbers associated with your contact. No need to go into the contact info itself.

    Gosh, it sucks that it's so hard to make an Android screenshot.

    Anyhow, start by entering the Phone app, which will include a phone keypad consuming the bottom two-thirds of the screen. Now start spelling the name of the person. After a few letters, their name will appear at or near the top of the list at the top of the screen. If you move the trackball up or down a bit, the entire screen will now be a list of those names (this step may be omitted if the desired contact is the first name listed). Now, with the desired name highlighted, move the trackball to the right or left to cycle through the different phone numbers available for that contact.

    Please try it and post back if it's still unclear.

    Works for me! Great tip. Now if the dialer actually dialed in a timely fashion when I told it to....
