Default Compose Message differences - 7250 vs 7290

Please Login to Remove!

Apologies if this is covered in a separate thread but I cannot locate it, so:

We are Canadian users of the 7000 series Blackberry units (7250 CDMA units from Bell Mobility, 7290 GPRS units from Rogers) and have a question on the 'Compose Email' differences between the two units as delivered from the carrier.

On the Rogers 7290, the 'Compose Email' behaviour brings up the Blackberry Address Book to Select an Address, which you must click to generate an email to the recipient. You are then returned to the Message Composition screen with the recipient listed in the To: field.

On the Bell 7250, the 'Compose Email' behaviour bypasses the step of going to the Address Book and goes straight to the Message Composition screen. You then can start typing out the name of the recipient in the To: field, which then starts an auto-resolve process to narrow down to your desired target. The process is more 'Outlook-like' in its behaviour.

The question - as the second behaviour is considered by some to be more user friendly, is there a way to mimic this on the 7290s through either a config change or device load change on the unit?

They probably have different OS Versions.
