I feel the same way. Why would I want to have hundreds of contacts showing when I really only need the 25 or so that I made a folder for in gmail? Another problem is that, with 1.5, it used to only give you the option of sending a message to the mobile phone number. Now it gives you the option of sending it to ANY phone number, including a land line (?). Now when I send a text, I have to make sure it's going to the right number. I could make multiple entries for each person, but doesn't that create more bulk? Now watch - someone will post telling me to "deal with it". They're probably right. I mean now I have really nifty animation! LOL! I'll be going back to a regular phone as soon as my contract is up. Pity. I really loved this phone until yesterday.
