    So even though I've been using Windows Phone for months now, I'm just now using it with cellular service. Today, I was texting someone while doing a thing you aren't supposed to do while driving (sorry) and I realized that I just needed to call the person. However, I had to go home, then to the group, then to the person, and then choose which call.

    I know, I know, not a huge deal. At least the interface loaded buttery smoothly. However, I feel like this is a valid concern. If this is supposed to be such a people-centric phone, shouldn't there be a way to call people a lot quicker? What if I wanted to call someone that isn't in a group? I would have had to have dug through my 200+ contacts in the People Hub.

    Maybe I'm just missing something. I sure hope so. Thanks!

    The something you're missing: TellMe; hold Windows button and then say, "Call [person's name or phone number]." Done! :P

    Just tap on the person's name at the top, it takes you straight to their contact info. Then tap call and you're done.

    yep. This is what I do when I decide that I need/want to call someone I'm texting with. Quick and easy.
