Default Dial by name gone in V4.1 on VZW???? It can not be - can it?

Please Login to Remove!

Upgraded my Verizon 7250 to 4.1 and now i can't dial by name in the phone - how can this possibly be?????

Am i missing something? Did they take this out or is it a bug?

If this is not fixable i'll have to revert to the earlier code - how do i get that?

Default Give it back

I agree on losing the type by name to find a contact in the phone screen. That was one of the best features of the phone. I am hoping they put that back - I can't imagine why it is a good idea to leave it out.

You can still do it, but it's an extra click now. Run phone, click and select 'Call from Address Book', then you can enter a name.

Thank you - still just a few too many clicks to get there. Hope the revise the software to allow this function directly from phone.

Actually this impacts a reasonably small portion of BB owners:

- 71xx and 870x users can press and hold the green phone button, which brings up dial by name
- The 71xx and 87xx form factor would appear to be the going forward design
- V4.1 can only be installed on devices with 32mb of RAM or more
- That would leave the 7250 and 7290 and the only ones truly losing the functionality

I don't think the numbers are there for RIM to put it back.

Just my opinion.

Fine... RIM doesn't have to put it back but I will give $ to the person the writes software so it does work again.

I believe this offer has been on the table since the day 4.1 came out....

Unhappy Install older phone module?

Is there any way to install an older version of the phone independent of the core software? I think it sucks that I now need to roll up the cursor to the field entry and click twice to get the menu. Whoever thought the community wanted this is out of their mind!
