Seach option

Hey another little feature thats missing and thats being able to search for a person in the call list. 


Click on the phone button and you see calls, contacts and dia pad - what would be real usfull is a search option being in there. 


Yes you can go via the hub, but thats extra swipes.

Re: Seach option

You can do this from the Contacts list.  It might be an extra click (as opposed to an extra few swipes) but it can be done.


While in your Phone app, press and hold a contact's name for a second.  A menu will appear from the right.  The third icon from the top, the one that looks like a framed photo, is for View Details.  Click that then select Activity and you'll see what activity you've had with that contact.  


You're asking to search for a person in the Call List, I'm showing you how to start with the contact and work backwards to see activity.  Both involve searching and yield almost the same results.

Re: Seach option

thanks for that, happy knowing how to search etc  I'm highlighting a slight incompletness. 

You get the search option on calls from the hub - so why not have it also available from the calls option direct from teh main menu.


It's these little things that make it look slightly incomplete - creating distribution/group  lists is  a must and it's been missing.


Is this the best place to inform or not?


How do we get these missing things fixed?
