Patch: Dialer Keypad on by default

Your rating: None Average: 5 (4 votes)

Note: This only works on SailfishOS 2.0.0.x Saimaa and later

This really simple (two lines!) patch modifes the Phone application to open the Dialer Keypad by default. Reboot your phone (or restart voicecall-ui) after applying.

Ensure to disable every patch before upgrading SailfishOS to a new release.


If you like my work, you can buy me a beer :)

It will be perfect with "Call contact" cover action.

Hi Ancelad, would you be so kind and adapt your patch "Always Show Close Icon in app-switcher" for Sailfish OS 3.4? Thanks a lot :)

Wow! What a great patch I'd missed!

Thanks. However I meant "only" call contact cover. When opening the app will open the dialer, the dialer cover action will be obsolete.
