Comment(by Treviño):

 Replying to [comment:1 zecke]:
 > @Implementation: It is fine, maybe the valuespace is not populated from
 the callhistory

 No, it isn't... What do you think about implementing the "search-last-
 dialed-number" feature? Do you think it would be much slower?

 > @Approach:
 >   - Having a feature that is not easy to discover (no button for it),
 that can be accidently triggered (someone pressed call with an empty
 number accidently and then a complete number gets dialer) are violations
 of common usability standards.

 Well, that's not completely true... Yes, there's no button for it, but
 redialing pressing the "green button" is a common phone feature. However
 With my patch to re-dial the "LastDialedCall" you need to press the call
 button twice, not once!
 In fact, if the text string is empty and you press the call button, that
 text area just populated with the latest called string. If you want to
 dial that number, instead, you've to press the call button another time. I
 think that this is a reasonable approach.

 > @Proposal: Add a redial action to the menu of the dialer. This will take
 two clicks (open menu, click on redial) and we can consider exchanging the
 SMS button with the redial action (easy once the code for the action is
 there) in the future. Would you be willing to give that a try?

 I could do it, but imho adding a button is redundant while using the menu
 action is not so intuitive. I'd exchange the SMS button with a "clear
 number", instead...
