    number to address

    Advertisement



    Hi, new to Blackberry altogether and have a question. On all my previous cell phones you could just start typing in a number and it would show you the contact name, I do this frequently and when I do it on the BB it just says no addresses? Am I missing a setting or do I have to use the search feature?
    Thanks,
    T

    Actually just type in the name of the person or contact you are looking for. It will come up with those contacts. Don't type in the number.

    Hope this helps

    Re: number to address

    Thanks, I figured out how to use part of the name and then select but sometimes I get a call on my home phone with no caller id and try type that number into my cell to find out if I know the person. (I live in the mountains outside cell service so cant get cell calls at home) Or sometimes a friend will get a call from an unknown person and want to know if I have that person in my phone, this is only possible by using the number to find the name....

    Yea i guess you might have to use the search function. I'm not sure if the pearl is designed to work that way. Sorry.

    I beleive that if you type in the # (as in dialing) and hit the green phone key it will say " Calling TQMilazzo". I am not sure how that will work if the phone has no service....

    That seems to do it. Sorry for a kind of pointless question but it's always strange getting used to a new phone making the simple adjustments etc..
