I use gmail and have my contacts synced with gmail, so for many of my friends I have both their name and their email address on my phone. These are under the same contact--that is, if I look under contacts either on my phone or on a PC in my gmail account, a person's phone number and the email address are listed under the same name. I don't have a person's name twice in contacts (once with their name and once with their email) or anything.
Anyway, my problem is that if I want to start an SMS to someone and I hit the "messaging" icon and then start typing their name in the "to" box, my phone starts to give auto-complete options..and the first option is ALWAYS their email address, and I have to scroll down to select their phone number! From within the messaging/SMS program. That seems ridiculous. How can I get it to just fill in their phone number, or at least give that as the first option?
Also, other things I've checked: I definitely have people's phone numbers entered as "mobile phone"

What ROM are you using? I am using g60-final ROM and it's working just fine as I have all my contacts in gmail with email, home #, cell #, and work #. When I type their name in the messaging app it list just their numbers, and no email.
I have a similar problem. One person on my list always shows their #@virginmobile.ca when they text me. I cannot just reply but have to create a new message using their phone #. Not sure if this has something to do with Gmail sync. I may just reset my phone once again.
