Can you set your phone so that it auto completes numbers as you imput them into the phone to make a call, say the 1st 4 numbers are 0824, then it will show all the people in my adress book with 0824 numbers and then as i put in the 5 digit the option get less and less. My wife has a Samsung u700 and it has that option?
The 2nd question. Is there a way to set it up like that when you input the recipient in a new msg, that it does not give numbers but letters, thus if I put an a in the to box and I send it, it will give me all the people under a and i then pick the person, my old 6680 had that option
It depends a bit on what phone model you are asking about.
In any case, the first one I don't think any Nokia phone does currently (however, I haven't tried every Nokia phone model).
For the second one, at least the Nseries phone models work that way; in the "To:" field, do a long press of the '#' key to switch from numeric mode (123) to text mode (Abc) and then you can type in a name or a partial name for the text message recipient. When you then hit send, all matching contacts will be listed and you can choose who you want to send to.
