Default Here's a new one...

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8110 and am running 4.3.0.93.

When I'm drafting an email and in the "To" column, I can access any of my contacts by starting to type their last time. However...certain contacts will not show up if I start by typing their first name.

Anyone else seen this one?

Yep, if you have a filter on your address book...

Address Book > Menu > Filters > UNcheck all.

Good suggestion...both boxes were unchecked. And here's an even stranger thing. When I'm in the address book I don't have this issue. Only when I'm in the "To" field while doing an email.

Removing the battery for a reboot is always a good first suggestion.

Otherwise, I am at a loss of ideas there. Someone else will likely have another suggestion.

Very odd.

Do the ones that don't show up have email address' linked to that name?

Thanks for your responses guys. BCollins, yes, they have email addresses.

This is perplexing...usually I'm fairly proficient at figuring this stuff out but I'm stumped here.

I should also clarify...in all instances entering the LAST name works...only the FIRST name gives me this issue. Bizzare!!

I have to ask a dumb question here. Are you displaying the address book by
Last Name,First Name order?

I had the same issue and it was because I had their first and last name in the First Name field. Moved their last name to Last and it worked fine.

No such thing as a dumb question. In the address book, names are Last, First. When I'm entering a contact into the "To" line it varies...sometimes the first name will yield multiple names (i.e. Jennifer Smtih, Jennifer Jones).

I have one Glenn in my book...and when I hit the first three letters it sometimes comes up with "gle" (and his name doesn't appear) or some other combination...hlr/glr/hle...etc.

Thanks for the input guys.

edit: to Jenks point, I checkd and the Glenn I referred to above has the names properly separated between First/Last.

Maybe Glenn's address book details have been corrupted. Do you think removing, pulling the battery, and re-adding Glenn back would help? Weird issues call for weird solutions.
