    Default Bring up Dial Pad during SMS Entry

    Sorry, I've tried to search but I keep getting a message to the effect of "your search is too short, minimum of four words" and when I enter four or more words I get the same message . . .

    Anyway, when I want to send a text message to a phone number that is not in my contacts list I prefer to use the "dial pad". Sometimes it pops up but most times it does not.

    Is there a trick to getting the dial pad?

    I have never seen the dial pad pop up on SMS. I really don't think that there is a way to do this.

    Never seen that either, it only comes up when you are entering their number to a contact file, not in the messaging window.
