Exactly my point. How many times do you type in the number on a modern cell phone? Once. How many times do you *RECALL* the number from a list? All the time.
Function dictates a scroll wheel, for the common case.
The current keypad is optimized for numeric entry, but SUCKS for recall. Since recall from a list is now the most common method for selecting a number to dial, it should take precedence.
