Default Top of the address book

Please Login to Remove!

Other than a reboot, or using the trackball forever, how do get to the top of the address book after locating an entry?

That is, if I type J, O, N , it will take me to Jones. How to get back to the top? Is there a shortcut?

Nope, that doesn't work. I have hundreds of entries above A, eg :

$ Site 1
$ Site 2
$ Site 3

....and if backspace over the most recent search and type in $, it ignores it. If I type in $ Site 1, it gives me the searh results.

All I want to to get to the top of the list, as if I just powered up.

Then you need to rename your contact entries, lol.

j/k. I do have some symbol and numerical contact entries that upon entering "1" it will go to the top. Same with the "$". I don't know why yours won't.

Good luck.

I've found that by holding the ALT key and scrolling up is similar to paging up. Not a direct link to the top, but a lot quicker than scrolling through the entire contact list.

$ and Enter gives me " [No Matches: $]

1 and Enter gives me 'only' the entries with '1'.

Neither is the top of the entire list with all entreis below it.

BUT I JUST FOUND OUT HOW

$ and hitting the ESCAPE key, resets the list to power on status.

Hold down the ALT key and scroll up. It will skip to the top of the next set of letters.
