Messaging Brings Up Email Addresses

    My problem is that when I go to Messaging, Compose, Enter Recipient, it brings up contacts and all email addresses (all 42 of them!). All I want to see is my contact's phone numbers displayed.

    Like I Type: Heather
    And I See: Heather@test.com & (317) 444-444

    I want to see: (317) 444-444

    Anyway to make it so that the emails don't show up when I am trying to select a phone number to text?

    Yeah, I used to find that annoying, but there's no way around it. Eventually, I got used to sending text messages by going through contacts (where you can choose to only see contacts with phone numbers).
    I guess, Messaging app is supposed to be used for sending all sort of messages (including e-mails). The very annoying thing is that once you send an e-mail through the messaging app, the recipient doesn't receive it from your e-mail account, but it shows your phone number instead. I just don't find it very useful.

    Actually, just set your contacts settings to display phone numbers only. Go to phone, contacts, hit settings button again and hit more, then display options and tap "only contacts with phone numbers".

    No, that won't do it...That will only show those contacts with phone numbers in "contacts" but will not take care of what the original poster is asking about.
