Default Is this a fault?

I go in to messaging and the "To" field is highlighted. Typing someones name doesn't bring anything up. So I go in to the options and select "Add Recipients" and it says "No contacts with phone numbers". However, if I just type the persons phone number in the "To" field it shows their name when I've finshed entering it. The Contacts screen shows 125 people all with numbers attached. The only way I can text someone that I don't already have a conversation going with is to go in to my contacts, find them, and create the message from there :/

Log onto your PC gmail account.
Edit your contacts, and change the type of number to mobile. Save all changes, then re-sync your contacts from your phone.

Also, place standard Messaging app with Handcent. See market place for Hancent.

Cool, thanks. I tried that and it worked, but do I have to do every contact one at a time?

Also, I'll ask you since you seem to know what you're talking about. Do you know why the phone would be laggy? Is it just not a very good phone or is there anything I can do to fix it? I play the odd game sometimes and the screen freezes slightly every so often. Also, even when navigating the menus or turning the screen, it still happens. I don't run many apps, and nothing that should be demanding. Battery Life and Battery Left are the main ones. It's really annoying.

Thanks.

If you want more speed, follow my root guide. Once you're rooted you need to install a few more mods.

See this thread.

Samdroid Kitchen Mod

Choose the options you want, mostly the default will do.
Choose Launcher Pro [x] my prefefrence
Choose also Live Wallpapers [x]
Choose Email.apk [x]
Any other aps you want.

Once Kitchen Mod is installed, install Samdroid Turbo.

See this thread.

Samdroid Turbo

You will a very fast and very stable Phone.

If you've rooted using my root guide, then you can reboot into recovery and install Samdroid Kitchen Mod.

After you have installed the Kitchen Mod, install just the
Frozen Elcair 8 Beta 9.zip, again from Recovery screen.

You must have the Kitchen Mod installed BEFORE Frozen Elcair 8 Beta 9.zip.

This thread was originally about a fault with Gmail.

Are you reffering to installing the Samdroid Mod?

If so, always assume you're going to lose everything, and backup first. See my backup guide mentioned in my root guide.

Also. If you use Appbrain, re-installing apps is a breeze. Again this is all covered in my backup guide.
