When Searching through Address Book, is there a way to search for fields other than Names, or street names; ie telephone area codes? I could do this on my old Palm PDA (search for all contacts in a specific area code, for example), but can't figure out how to do this on my BB 7520. TIA

Not thru the address book. But you could use the Search ICON to do it. Just check the Address Book as the app you want to search and search for the number or street in the Text field. This search is a little slow, though, but it gets the job done.

EDIT: Guess I should test before posting. The search icon appears to only search the name/company fields and the Notes field of an address book entry. I was not able to get it find a street name I had for an entry. Bummer.
