Default Unable to lookup personal contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Running BES 3.6 2a with Exchange 5.5, assuming you have personal contacts in outlook/ device.

When you do Lookup, its not finding these contacts, it only looks at the Gloabl Address Book in Exchange is this normal ?, as the use wants it to do a lookup at the Global addressbook and his personal contacts as well. can this be done ?

Unfortunately remote lookups from the handheld are only resolved against the Global Address List in Exchange.

Is there a way to change what address book is used for the BLackberry Lookup?
Currently our Lookup looks up AD.

Lookup function on BB only looks up the GAL...nothing more. If you had contacts loaded in your BB, you dont need to do anything more than type in the first few characters in the contact list to get what you are looking for...would be real nice if the GAL could be present on the device without doing a lookup, but that's not what we have today...
