    I really miss this feature from my old Motorolas. Is there any way to make the treo automatically redial a busy number.

    Thanks

    [sigh] To quote myself in another thread:

    Again, if we're talking about "auto" redialing with a button press (semi-auto, maybe?), all you have to do is hit the green phone button twice to pull up a list of recently-dialed numbers and select the first one. I just confirmed this is in the Cingular user manual, so it ain't just Sprint. In other words, RTM or play around a little before complaining.

    If we're talking about fully automatic redialing (with no user action at all), ... what's the demand for such an app? What's the need?


    Please search before posting. A quick search using the title of you thread reveals the following:

    I agree with the OP that fully-automatic redial when busy is useful. It is tedious even with a landline to keep hitting the redial button. Useful times include: while driving, while writing/playing music/cooking/eating/etc, and while trying to reach a concert ticket vendor at 10am on Saturday morning.

    P.S. I think the OP knows how to manually redial, wants auto redial, and that there was no need to flame him about searching and RTFMing.

    How is doing the OP's job for him by searching and posting links considered flaming? Because I reminded him that he should search before starting thread # 615 on the same topic? Sorry, but it's a forum rule, and it's a rule for a good reason.

    My mistake--I didn't realize that after Part 1 of your reply (which I interpreted as "RTFM to learn how to redial manually" and "why would you want auto-redial anyway?") there were some useful links in Part 2. Upon rereading, I hereby find your Part 2 appropriate.

    No worries, Jeff. Thank you for partially approving my post. As for the unapproved portion, you interpreted it correctly with the following exceptions:
    1) I said RTM, not RTFM.
    2) As clearly stated, it was a quote from another post that I felt was relevant to the current thread; I didn't write that "from scratch" in direct response to the OP's question. Perhaps reading it in the context of the original thread (which I hope the OP has done or will do since I linked to it) will make it seem more appropriate. Regardless, my opinion of fully automatic redialing's usefulness remains the same, and I reserve the right to express my opinion.
