But just pressing instead the search icon in the desktop will bring up the keyboard and then type the 2-3 letters.. My preference...use the keyboard while in desktop, and do not even need to press the search icon. Just start typing and your contacts appear. Emphasis here is that the Search tool is very nifty.
Very cool. I'm just starting to figure out the universal search function, and this one is new. It appears to be the only way you can dial using letters directly from your contacts without having to slide the phone open. (Not allowing you to use the phone key to dial directly from contacts, unless you slide the phone open, is awkward.)
One question, though. When I press the phone key I get the numbers pad, with a search box limited to dialing numbers, and a tab for my contacts list. How can you get your contact list to appear when you push the phone key?
