    I have come to expect with smart phones the ability to type in the letters of someones name in the dialer and bring up a contact. This doesn't seem to happen with the defy. Is there anyway to enable this without having to go through the somewhat slow process of searching the address book?

    1. Under >Settings>Search select "Contacts" as one of the searchable items.
    2. From any home screen, you will now be able to press the "Search" hard-key, then start typing the name of the contact.
