1. Will pressing and holding 1 still call my voice mail?
Yes. Pressing and holding 1 will still call your voice mail while entering 1 and hitting call will dial the number saved at speed dial slot 1.
2. Can you make the short cuts work using press and hold instead of entering a number and pressing call?
Sorry, but this is not possible without creating a new dialer. This app is meant to work seamlessly with whatever dialer you want to use, whether it is the default or a custom one you installed.
