    Doing Address Book Searches from Phone

    Advertisement



    I just upgraded my boss to the handheld 4.1.0.268 OS. He used to be able to go to Phone, start keys on his keypad and have it automatically do a search in his address book. It doesn't do this any more.

    He can get to it by scroll-wheel clicking and selecting Call From Address Book, but he's used to not having to go through that trouble just to do a simple address book search.

    I checked all the options and couldn't find one that enables this functionality. Is this "feature" no longer available in the new OS or is there some option / property that I haven't come across?

    On an 8700 series, have your boss "hold" the green key down for 1-2 seconds and teh phone log will switch to the address list where your boss can start searching the "old" way.

    Thanks for the replies. He has a 7250. I'm thinking there's some equivalent key combination but I have no idea what and couldn't find any in the user guide.

    Its been awhile but I believe on my old 7290 that I'd updated I would go to the phone and then scroll the cursor from the where you enter numbers down to the call list and then start typing.... something like that
