Default Address book lookup no longer works properly

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason, when using the search feature to search for contacts to txt, or just in general, all of a sudden, it no longer works.

Some addresses work, and I had a feeling it had something to do with categories, so I deleted those, but to no avail. Is anyone else having this problem? It's very strange.

I want to stress that it did work before, perfectly well. Now it just seems heavily bugged or something. I have made no updates, by the way. This is not the result of...anything, it seems.

EDIT: I am not only referring to the "Find:" feature at the top of the address book app, but even when putting in a name in the email compose screen to email someone. It seems the whole backend search database is messed up or something. If I want to contact someone, I need to scroll through my entire list of names and then take the action.

try taking the battery out and the sim card out, re-seat the sim card and put the battery back in

Default Good suggestion..

I was having the same issue with one of my boss's 8700. I took out the battery and sim card. That fixed the problem. Hopefully the fix will stick for a while. Thanks!!
