Default Can I make the phone buttons full screen?

Sick of fat fingering the buttons when trying to dial a number. Is there a fix out there to make the buttons full screen so I don't f it up and take forever to slowly dial a number? I've looked and haven't found anything for the Kaiser.


Thanks.

I agree with you on this too. I've got the retouched dialer but I find that the height of the buttons is still a little too small.

Yeah, I've seen the screen shots of it, and it still looks a little to small for my fingers.

As far as I know, you cannot just skin the dialer to get bigger buttons. You actually need to install an updated dialer. I use the iPhone dialer in combination with turning up the screen sensitivity to avoid most fat-finger incidents.

Is the iPhone dialer just the dialer? I don't want the rest of the fake iphone crap, just the dialer.

Yes it is just a dialer, written by Nargalzius. For the life of me I cannot find the link to it on XDA, so I uploaded it to my Box.net public share. Just click the Kaiser link in my signature, its named iPhone Dialer.

-Also-

If you want to increase the sensitivity of the touch screen, I recommend setting the registry key (HKLM\Drivers\TouchPanel\Pressure Threshold) to 5000. It may seem a little high, but the response time is practically instant, and very little pressure required (still enough to avoid accidental presses).

Got it, thanks man. I'll try it out. Hopefully it's what I'm wanting. Much appreciated.
