    I rooted this weekend and everything is GREAT - much better than I expected!!!

    There is a problem, though. My dialer is not dialing by the letters in the name of the contact. It only dials by the numbers. I have been dialing by name so long I don't know anybody's numbers any more and have to go through the contacts to find the name to select to make a call to them. VERY CUMBERSOME!!. Is there a setting to change or another dialer I can download? I really appreciate your help in this.

    Thnaks.

    I just installed Dialer One after posting this. It looks like it will do what I need - just a little more learning curve and getting used to it... Other suggestions are still welcome.

    I believe 'Dialer One' has been suggested from the android market, that may help;)

    Have you tried using your 'Voice Search' button? Press and say name, and it dials directly. For example; press and say, Joe Smith mobile. Then it dials that number in about 2-4 sec
