Remote Lookup Missing from Contacts under the Phone App

Remote Lookup is available under the dedicated Contact Applications but not under the list of contacts in the phone application. Am I missing a setting or is this a missing feature?

Re: Remote Lookup Missing from Contacts under the Phone App

Hey DHungate,

Thanks for the question.

 

The look-up under the phone application is only for local contacts.  Remote look-up is only available in the contacts application in BlackBerry 10.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Re: Remote Lookup Missing from Contacts under the Phone App

Hi VFer,

What about the work Calendar, when trying to add an attendee that isn't in your Contacts list?  I can't do a remote lookup against our Exchange GAL....no option to do that like DHungate experiences in the phone app.

Interesting, thanks for that!  Not sure what's going on for us then; remote contact (from the contacts app) works, but not from the calendar app when inviting people.  Will continue to investigate....
