Here is the shortcut i found.
Install Nova launcher.
Open up apps, then widgets, you will see a widget called "activities" long press that.
A menu will open up, scroll down to contacts, and tap that.
Scroll down to phone, you will see the phone icon, tap phone icon.
Now you have the phone dial pad on your homescreen to enter into *#0 menu.
It will not show up on the app drawer,just homescreen as a widget.
