    I have just got Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S - LT18i.
    How can I change the settings so that while I am typing a phone number on the phone keypad (i.e. the first 3-4 numbers), to have the phonebook names matching with that number displayed on the screen so that I will be able to choose the phone name I want?
    Is it possible?
    I had this autosearch on my old mobile (it was not Android) and it was very helpful.

    Thank you

    This isn't possible on the Arc S running android version 2.x - I've no idea why as my really old HTC had this functionality from the beginning.

    It does work if you upgrade the phone to android version 4.0 ICS but it you can't or don't want to do that then you will need to use an alternative dialler from the market that comes with autocomplete built in.
