Need Hi-Visibility Mil-Spec Dialer!

I am awaiting deployment and plan to take my HTC TP2 for use in the Middle East. I selected this phone, because it is CDMA and GSM. I really like it, however I am a little disappointed with the OEM Dialer skin.

I need something with more visibility then gray on a white background as is the case with the standard dialer. I tried to download Cmylxgo's Black Dialer, but sadly that seems no longer available.

Even that one, uses what appears to be light gray on Black, White or even bright green would be better from a visibility standpoint, perhaps with bolder numbers. I want something that I can see under the majority of conditions, and hopefully, without my reading glasses.

It would great if it would work with my standard ROM. I have searched and seen nothing like this, any advice?

Not yet, I am hoping that I will not have to fight with Sprint over that, I plan to use a local SIM for in-county GSM service. But, I plan to unlock it either way...

What is the "Dusk Dialer" ... OK... I found the ROM, but I like the Dialer better then the ROM, appearance wise anyway! I guess making the numbers bolder means a new font, I would have thought that the keys were all graphics files.

You're right about that.. the dialpads(keys) are all graphic files. Take a look thru my dialpads thread and see if there's anything you like in there. If not, let me know exactly what your looking for(color and design wise) and I'll try making it for ya

NFLdialpadSkins ~UPDATE~*Random Sets 4-23-2011* [DINIKsetAvail.](All teams included)

Edit: Just looked thru my storage card and found the cab you were originally looking for. Enjoy..

FYI your Sprint TP2 is already sim unlocked for NON-US networks so you don't need to sim unlock unless you want to use your phone on GSM carrier in the USA.

Good Luck and Thank You for your service!!

Thanks, wow you are quite the artist!

This is one I did this morning to illustrate what I am looking for, please do not laugh, I used M$ Paint! The scale is off, I used one I found to roughly hack it out.I would have liked to see the characters clearer, but that is a limitation of my program.

I also have thought about 2 letters on one side of the digit, and one on the other so that they could all be made bigger. Blue and Green are the last colors to disappear in low light, as anyone who has skindived will confirm.

I have no idea if what I am trying to do is within the technical limitations of the phone, I would assume that the correct sized skin, which this isn't, just close, would be applied were the actual touch points are encoded.

HornDoctor, thanks, yes I am aware that my Sprint will work in most areas overseas already, but as you said, I also wanted the capability to throw in an AT&T GoPhone SIM, for more US coverage.

As to the accolades, I am not worthy! I am just an "old" cop that is trying to help these folks, and pad my retirement. The heros are the young kids that are out there in the thick of it!

LOL for using Microsoft paint, that actually came out pretty nice. I used your image as a template and made a dialpad that's almost an exact match. The 2nd version has 2 letters on each side of the number as you mentioned above. They should work in both portrait and landscape. Let me know what you think and how they work out..

v1 (normal, pressed)..


v2 (normal, pressed)..
