    Hey guys and yes I am a new user,

    As I am a new user I do have a question. When I try to compose a text message in the Messaging app my contacts do not show up whether I search by phone number or by name.

    My contacts are synced with my phone through my gmail account. I am able to see my contacts as well as go into the contacts app and send a text from there. Is there something that I am doing wrong or perhaps just not getting?

    Help please

    Rush

    You probably don't have that contact set up under "mobile". Edit your contact and switch they're number to "mobile" and it should starting showing up when trying to find them in the text app.

    And the nice thing is you can log on to your gmail account and edit every thing from there much quicker.

    Or one step better ... Export your Contacts from Gmail and throw them into an Excel spreadsheet. Edit them there, (archive them as well), Import that file back into Gmail and resync your DROID. An excellent wat to Contact manage, even adding addresses for Google Maps.
