How can I see full addresses in contacts without the "map it" option?

    I recently wanted to get some addresses I have stored in contacts and found that they only show up as "show on map". The problem is, quite a few of my addresses are really long and you can't see the whole address under the "show on map" option, and I don't want to map it! I just want to see it so I can write it on an envelope. I guess I could map it every time I need an address, which is a waste of time, but even then, some of the addresses are in other countries and the map func. fails the address disappears before I get a chance to write down all the info. Is there a way to actually view the entire address without the map part?

    On a side note, does anyone know why I can't sync birthday info for contacts from google contact's? Mine never show up, I only get Facebook birthdays.

    And while I'm at it, even thought I use mybackup pro, when I have to do a hard reset, all my stored ringtones for contacts disappear and i have to program them all in again. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I can answer issue one. I too thought WTF!

    Once you pull up the person's info, use the "mouse" to highlight the address section in green.

    When highlighted, it will scroll 3 times, right to left, to show the complete address

    Great! Thanks for that. It is still not ideal, as the scroll is quite slow, but at least I can see it!
