    Hi.. on the Messaging screen after you hit Compose New Message, is there a way to bring up your contact list to select who you want to send the message to? It seems like you can only enter an actual number in the "To" field... Also, is there a way to send a text to more than one person at a time? Thanks.

    Make sure your contacts are in your phone correctly. Ie, their telephone number should be listed as "Mobile" -- if they are, once you start typing a name you'll see a list of all your contacts pop up that meet your letter filter/criteria. But, they won't show up there unless the phone thinks that the number in your phone is their "Mobile" number.

    Thanks so much for the tip. I just went to open my contact list to check them, and they were all gone. Um, has anyone else had an issue with their entire contact list disappearing? Edited: Okay, when I go to "Search contacts" and type in a name, it will come up. But when I try to open my Contacts List in general, it says I have no contacts to display. Very odd.

    Try going into your contacts, hit the menu button and select display options.



    Make sure you are sync'ing your contacts with your Google account and make sure that 'only contacts with phones' isn't checked?



    You can also click on 'Accounts' from the menu button there and make sure all your email accounts are set to sync. They should be sync'ing with the cloud for backup purposes anyway.

    if you didnt already figure it out, to send a message to multiple people just start a new message and in the to field just put a comma and keep adding numbers or contacts.. easy enough

    Can I get my Contacts to show up as a pull down when texting?

    "without typing the first two letter of each name"

    Thanks, you answer begs the question (an implied App will do it) "What App will give me a pull down menu for contacts?".



    On another thread I've asked about changing the font size for text messages.

    The pull down would be nice but the font size maybe the deal breaker.

    I'm in the 30 days and it will be the reason for taking it back.
