    When I begin typing the first few letters in the phone dialer, it displays the corresponding contacts by most frequently used. How can I get this same feature in the gmail app? There is no setting that I have found either. Without it I sometimes have to scroll through pages of contact to find the right individual. I only email the same 20 people a day but have close to 1000 contacts. Has anyone figured this one out?

    I second that.

    I tried to change the email name for a certain email within a contact (via web interface), too -- with no luck.

    GMail made email address collection quick and effortless ("do not delete any email, do not loose any contact") -- but some emails are just more precious than others. Give us a tool to priorities ourselves or priorities based on frequency used, pls!

    I just tried the auto fill on gmail and it works the same as phone.
    What version of gmail you using have you updated it?

    Next to you
    I concur with robo, when I compose an email in gmail, and I start to type a contact name, it will auto fill as I type with matching contacts....perhaps as robo asked, what version of gmail do you have? I am on version 2.3.6.

    I'll also add you can use the phone to find the individual you wanna email and them select to mail them via the contact details.
    Also you could arrange your contacts into groups and email them that way too if you have a regular set you mail to.

    Using
    Google Mail 2.3.6
    Android 2.3.5

    I checked the Android and Web interface of GMail. I am positive that I am getting different results. In the web-interface I am getting results that correlates with the-most-often-used (never alphabetically sorted), while in the Android interface, I am getting results with names sorted alphabetically.

    Cheers,
    M

    Instead of creating groups, the alias of the contact shall be checked for a match -- that is not the case now. It would be one user per group in my case...
