MOST of us make calls on our smartphones on a regular basis.
If you find yourself scrolling through your contact book before you ring your desired person, you may want to try a lesser-known Android trick.
The trick lets you use numbers instead of letters to find a contact.
This may sound confusing but it’s actually a quick and easy Android trick.
Instead of going to find your contacts on your phone, just click the call button straight away.
The numerical keypad will pop up.
Now, all you need to do is type out the contact’s name in numerical form.
For example, if you have your mother saved as “Mom” on your phone, then you’d type 666.
This is because the M and O letters are found under the number 6 on the keypad.
It’s basically how people used to type on old Nokia phones with real buttons making up the keypad.

After typing the numbers, you should see the name of the contact pop up.
You can then click this and start calling them.
The trick lets you avoid your smartphone contacts book altogether.
It might be less useful for contacts saved under a really long name.
