Is possible to search in all words in the first and last name fields ?
Now it search only in last or first name depending on how it is ordered the contacts list (from the Options menu).
Example, if i have 2 contacts:
And I type the letter "O" in the search Engine, it found only "Oliver Stone"!!
search is terrible not only in contact. In the music library, too!
for example I have song "The Salmon Dance". Upon request "Salmon" result is "0"
nice choice of track. Chemical rulez
however, this thing is really ugly. Sometimes I can not find the numbers! Strange that nobody talks about it.
I agree losing the ability to search for a string in either first or last name is a massive retrograde step. It was available in the last Nokia I had. Could the tech guys please sort out ASAP
I have just moved from C5-00 to C3-01. I find it very complicated to find certain contacts. I'm using this phone for bussiness purposes, so most of my contacts are named like first and/or last name + company that person works for or reversed. It doesn't matter on C5-00 how I save contact, I could always find it by entering any part of name, but 2 days after switching to C3-01 I'm starting to freaking out. Basicaly contact list is unsuable because I need to know how my contact is saved in order to find it. On C5-00 was another great feature for contact search, while in home screen if I want to find contact named "Mario" I can simply enter 62746 numbers and the phone will display all contacts results which have letters assigned to this numbers in entered order. So it will return results mario, napin, margo, obrin...
Nokia! Please fix this. Contact list isn't used only to store friends and famly members numbers. Right now it's UNUSABLE!!!
OK. You are right about smart dial feature. But what about contact or any other search? Why does it search only by first name if sorted by first then last name, and by last name if sorted last then first. Why it can't do both at the same time? Meanwhile I've solved my problem by selling brand new C3-01 and bought used but great E6-00.
