C5 - Search Contacts issue

Hi,

 

I recently bought Nokia C5-00. Its quite good. But i'm facing some issue with contacts search option.

 

I have all names in as a lastname(including first name and last name)  in phone memory. When I search the contact with starting letter, it wont display the name according the letter which i enter.

 

For ex. :  I have contacts like :  My Airtel, My Hutch, Hemanth, Ashok. 

 

If I press 'A', it shows My Airtel first and then Ashok, its quite ambiguous way. I just checked with Nokia customer care, I did not get resolution for this. 

 

It is searching whole context name instead of letter starts with.

 

 

Thanks

Vish

Re: C5 - Search Contacts issue

Search depends on the settings in     "Options -> Settings -> Name Display".

by default name display would be "Last name First name". so it priority is - It first searches the first letter of 'last name'  and then searches the first letter of 'first name'.

Re: C5 - Search Contacts issue

This makes no difference . I moved 561 contacts that were entered in the last name field to the first name field and it still could not search logically in alphabetic order. What a usless alogarithim this search method is ... at least give the user the option. I had to buy a pay as you go model (Nokia 2730 Clasic) so that I had a phone that was usable.

Re: C5 - Search Contacts issue

hmm,, actually "Options -> Settings -> Name Display". this is not a exact solution,,

welll c5 gave a good option to search easy n smart,,,

i direct say with an example ,

if you want to search 'airtel' then just type '247835'

i mean

a=2

i=4

r=7

t=8

e=3

l=5

its all about when you write T9 english in messeging like the corresponding letter should be type then you get exact search :smileyhappy:

Re: C5 - Search Contacts issue

It looks to me like the phone will always search in the opposite of what you choose to display. If you display first name, last name, it will search in the last name. If you display last name, fist name it will search in the first name. This makes no sense. The logical choice would of course be to search in the first displayed part of the name, not the second. And there is no way to change it. Makes it useless.
