    now that i've ventured away from the sense UI and rooted/CM6'd my Hero, i'm finding it hard to find contacts easily

    in sense, you could start searching for contacts from the phone's dialpad using the T9 system - but that system doesn't exist here

    yes, i have some starred contacts - and the phone log "helps"

    but i can't star EVERYone (defeats the purpose) and going back through the phone log can be more trouble than just going into contacts and searching




    anybody have any better ideas?

    I am using the google search widget to find contacts. It seems to work pretty fast.

    On my main screen I just make a folder and then drop shortcuts for my most frequent contacts in it for fast one-click dialing (ok two clicks if you count opening up the folder) without having to scroll thru the long list of contacts in my main phone-book.

    There's an app for that. Easy Dialer is free with a paid version available.

    yep - i do that too

    and i star certain contacts

    and i've started to use the voice search - it still takes a long time but its very hands-free and convenient
