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?
Hi Guinda, to get your contact list to appear when you push the phone key, what you need to do is set it up in phone option.

1. Open Phone (press green phone key)
2. Press BB button, select "OPTIONS"
3. Select group "CALL LOGS AND LISTS"
4. Under "PHONE APPEARANCE" section, select from drop down menu of "INITIAL VIEW" you can choose DIAL PAD, CONTACT LIST, PREVIOUS or CALL LOG.

Hope this helps.
