    Messaging question!!

    So i was wondering if you go to messages and compose a new message..you can only type the number you want to message or can you access your contacts from there and message them? The only way i can do it as of now is go to contacts find the person then message them......Also another question...can you forward a text or copy a certain word(s) from browser or even messages? Thank you

    Have you tried to type their name?

    Highlight and long press the text you want to copy, Should copy automatically.

    You can type both number or name, however if you want to always type by name; in contacts, their primary number needs to be 'Mobile' not Home or Work.

    No! to the second question, unless you have an third party app!!

    As stated above, type the contact name and a list will appear... choose the contact. Copy and paste from the browser simply press menu>more>select text then highlight area to copy after selecting phone will state "text copied to clipboard." In text message long press and select paste.....

    No problem, I just found this out too, the phone really is a small PC.

    Not sure if there's a way to mass-update all your contacts like that but I guesss the second easiest way is to just go in to your contacts on the web and just edit them on your computer.

    If I understand your question, set up your home email account on your mobile
    and you can then sync contacts, email and calendar...

    I know this works for gmail account very easy!!
