    Does anyone know of a tweak that will cause the phone app to open to "Contacts" every time no matter what the last section was used?

    I could hide the "Contacts" app in a folder somewhere out of the way if I could do this.

    Seems pretty easy to just tap on contacts when you open the phone app. You'd save less then a tenth of a second with a tweak like this. Come on S.

    It's a consistency thing. I have always disliked how the MobilePhone.app worked in this regard. I am sure that some people would like to always open to the Keypad or Favorites. The user should have the option to pick a default "page" to open into or have the app open to the last page used as it does now.

    You know what kre62? Many apps out there offer this kind of configuration option. I find it amazing that you find it amazing that I might want such a feature in an app!

    Maybe I just like messing with you. Maybe it's because you get so pissed off so easily. Maybe.

    There is a new free app out there called "StartDial" that does exactly what I wanted.

    It lets you choose which page the MobilePhone.app opens to:

    Keypad
    Favorites
    Contacts - My choice....
    Recents

    Life is better now....

    S-

    P.S. You know what you can do now, kre62.

    After reading this topic I downloaded Startdial.

    I have a 32GB 4.1 JB iP4 and I couldn't get it to work after several resprings and even reboots.
