    if you just start typing a name from the homescreen, the contacts will pop up and it shows a list of their numbers beneath their name. It won't do it if you're going through the address book manually.

    Or if you have dial from homescreen disabled, when you go into the phone app and just start typing someone's name, the resulting list acts pretty much like you describe. I don't think it happens from the address book app itself.

    A nice feature I think, on the phone app if you type the initials of someone's name separated by space (ie john smith you type 'j s' or 's j') you get everyone in your address book with those initial, roll down to highlight and shazamm!!!

    Go into call logs hit menu and bring up options. You can change it there.

    If you set it to 'yes' from the home screen just punch a number or type an address book name and the phone app is brought up.
    However, set it to 'no' and now the homescreen shortcuts become available (ie b to open browser, m to open mailbox, do a search for others) and you can still dial quicky by pressing the send (green) button once first.
