I've chosen 'direct call' as my default calling option by accident. When I'm calling someone I want to be asked which application I want to choose (Dialer/Viber/Skype). When I go to settings/applications/manage applications/ALL/dialer storage (because Dialer is my default option for calling) I can't pick 'clear defaults'; it says that there is no default set. But I'm sure there is!

How can I fix this so that I'm prompted when I want to make a call?

Which phone / version of Android are you running? – Andrew Lott May 29 '13 at 10:21

You might want to give Default App Manager a try:

Default App Manager is a simple yet very functional app to manage (set defaults, clear/reset defaults) default applications for different types of actions that Android does. Unlike other applications that allow you to manage defaults for only one-two types of categories, this app allows to you to manage for almost all the common actions.
