10 amazing Android tips
But maximum users are not aware of some amazing Android tips that make a user smarter. Now we are going to discuss with you about 10 amazing Android tips.
How to search contact names by keypad
When we need to call any person then we go to contact list, find out the name and call all the person. Here we use the keyboard. Do you know that by the use of the keypad we find any saved contact? There are two processes by which we can find any contact number.
▪︎By number: It is very easy. Suppose you have saved a number which is 017**397842. Now if you write to the keypad 784/978/842/9784 etc (same order according to the saved contact and at least 3 numbers) you will find the number. Note: the number you write to the keypad what is contained by another contact then it will also be shown. Check the below picture and understand the tricks easily:
▪︎By name: Look at the keypad. Here we get numbers 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 * and #. If we notice that keypad very clearly then we find English letters are written bottom of each number. As example
2 contains A,B,C;
3 contains D,E,F;
4 contains G,H,I;
5 contains J,K,L;
6 contains M,N,O;
7 contains P,Q,R,S;
8 contains T,U,V;
9 contains W,X,Y,Z.
Here is the trick. Let’s explain it. Suppose you want to find out a contact named LABIB. The first letter is L and 5 contains L; A, B is placed in 2; I is placed in 4. So we have to write 52242. Then the contact LABIB comes out.
Check the picture below:
You should know that this two methods work together. I wrote to the keypad 529 and see the result:
I hope you understand the process. You can use this trick even in some button phones.
