Default Find name while in phone app

Please Login to Remove!

After upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1 I find that I can no longer search for names in the phone app (name list)...
I tried changing the Phone List View, but no luck there.

Has anyone else noticed this, and is there a way to search for names easily within the phone app?

Thx!

You don't mention what model BB you have. If it is a 71xx or an 8700, you can press and hold the green button and it will bring up the address book which you can search.

Speaking of search.. This question has been asked and answered a lot. And generated a lot of controversary...

In which case, with the 7290, search by name is gone. I have no idea why it's gone, but it's gone.

The only way I know how to do it is to scroll to the top section and click the wheel twice to get to the address book.

hmmm... [email address]? ;)
I wonder if it is possible to restore the old phone app onto the device (and, of course, if that would restore the search by name functionality).
