    Advertisement



    Is there any other way to view name & # in the address book instead of every time having to click show sum phone book or show address every time I use the messaging options to make sure its the right number why can't it show name & # in your first option all the extra steps is such a waist of time they say the phone was three years in making then your telling me nobody thought let's also install predictive texting too everything takes at least 2 steps if not more. Maybe its just my illitericy off the 8100. Thanks sorry so long

    I'm sorry I'm having trouble understanding the question. So you want to be able to view the address book how?

    The only way to sort the Address Book is by First Name, Last Name or Company.

    As for Messaging people you can just start typing from the Home Screen their name and it will come up. Then hit the Menu Button and Select what type of message you want to send SMS, MMS, Email, BB Messanger or just call them.

    I hope that I answered you questions. if not please clarify.

    Just think of your Blackberry as a Little electronic Black book. It's called an address book for a reason and not a contact list. You have to remember the Blackberry was designed for business use first. It wouldn't make any sense to show a number next to the name especially if you have multiple numbers for each name.

    Just remember you can type their name from the Home screen and it will bring up the closest contacts. It took me forever to adjust. Hope that helps.

    From the home screen if you just start typing the name of who you're looking for then you will see the names and telephone numbers of each contact that comes up. Does that help?

    This is the best option for what you want to see
