    Is there a way to simply do this:

    I get a text from my son. I don't want to txt him back, I want to call him.

    On my BB, I was able to just select his name from the txt screen, and it would pull up him email, phone, text , snail mail, etc., every address i had for him in the address book. Then I could just choose which method to use to respond back.

    When I am in the messaging screen, I don't see a way to choose anything but reply back via text.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    nvm, never occured to me to long press the icon next to the name, i had tried long pressing the name...

    I see that long pressing the icon brings up a bunch of options just like the BB1

    Also, when you are in a convo for a contact, hit the menu button and there is an option to call that person.
