    Samsung Galaxy S4 - default phone app

    Hi

    Suddenly my S4 has stopped prompting with suitable app choice when making a phone call.
    Previously, when I selected a contact and hit the 'call' icon, I was presented with a list of apps to complete the action - Skype, Phone, Dial-a-code etc.
    This was useful for example when calling abroad, because I could choose Skype or Dial-a-code depending on the country.
    Now it just dials using the Phone app and does not give me the choice.

    Looking in settings->Application Manager->Phone there are no defaults set.

    Any ideas on how to revert to previous behaviour is much appreciated.

    Samsung S4 i9505 / Android 4.3


    Thanks in advance

    I haven't seen this issue before. Have you tried clicking the "Clear defaults" button even though it doesn't appear a default is set?

    I've looked around a bit and this does seem to happen to some S4 owners. Unfortunately I don't see a working solution anywhere.

    I think your Samsung S4 i9505 have some problem on it's android operating system. You should better Update your operating system to next version, then your problem will be solved. Thank you.

    Try this out:
    Go to settings, more, application manager, swipe right too "all" find "phone dial" or the app that you need and click on it then tap clear defaults.

    Hope this helps you out.
