I bought a Droid 4 when my Palm Centro died. One of the features I liked was the ability to assign a letter for speed dialing. A letter is much more easily remembered than a number. Is it possible to assign a letter for speed dialing on the Droid 4?
Good news MDA40. The Droid 4 offers something even easier than speed dialing called direct dial. With direct dial, you can create a widget on your screen to simply tap a small picture and name of the person to place a quick call. You can even group multiple direct dial widgets into a folder on your screen. The easy steps to create the widget or folders are at: http://vz.to/18MvMSJ

The speed dial function was removed when the phone was upgraded to Jelly Bean. Alternatives are to use the Favorite Contacts or Direct Dial widgets.
I appreciate your prompt reply re: Direct Dialing feature. I think this feature is a good one for those that chose it. However, I am extremely unhappy that the "speed dialing" feature (press and hold a number button) has been arbitrarily removed from Jelly Bean. Opening the folder of Direct Dial icons may be faster in some cases, when dialing only amongst a group of friends, rather than opening the dialer and dialing for business use or for dialing friends by holding a button, although I cannot see how. It certainly lacks consistency with prior Android interfaces and without other phone and other user interfaces. This was a bad decision and I hope Verizon can be an advocate for the return of true speed dialing in the next Android release.
