    So when i go into my messenger and begin to type someones name only my facebook names come up or my favorites. Like i added 3 new people to my contacts since about 2 weeks ago. Yet when i being to type their name in messenger nothing comes up just facebook contacts. I have to go to contacts and find them then message them? Anyone know to fix?

    You can get to the same needed screen, either by tapping PHONE, then the CONTACTS tab; or, just tap the CONTACTS icon.

    Once within that Contacts-focused screen, hit the menu key. Then, choose DISPLAY OPTIONS. You will see your gmail account address, preceded with a round silver arrow pointing to the right. Tapping that gmail addy opens a drop-down list, reflecting your groups. You'll likely see that MY CONTACTS is pre-selected. Just tap the group you want. You may need to scroll, as ALL OTHER CONTACTS is listed last. Select all contacts

    Make sure your new contacts numbers are under Mobile numbers. It defualts to "Home" and it won't show up when you start composing a text message.

    :thinking: I do not get it. Mine is not thru an email, it is only associated thru facebook, and I have already deleted my facebook, deleted the contact and re-added the contact and then the facebook as well. Anyone have any ideas??
