    I cannot believe this can be right, but it seems that when you bring up the Phone screen, as you type you can only search by name not company. So, if I wish to call one of my customers, I have to remember what a person's name is since I cannot just start dialing the company name.

    I see there are apps that can offer a search that includes the company name field, but that won't help when you are trying to make a call quickly.

    Am I missing something? This is the biggest problem I am finding trying to switch from Blackberry. All the other benefits are great, but if making calls is more difficult, and I make alot of calls, then I have to rethink this.

    Thanks for any tips!
