Blackberry Text Messaging Issue

Hi everyone,


    I have a Blackberry which has loads of contacts (>3000) because they are synced from Outlook. Some of these have phone numbers and some just have email addresses without numbers.


When I go to the SMS section on the device and click on the joystick to bring up the search box, the moment I type in the letter it shows me all the contacts that begin with that letter. So I am fine with that but some of these contacts do not have phone numbers.


So my question is that is it possible to configure the Blackberry so that it only shows contacts from the address book that have actual phone numbers and not everything?


Also when I go into the address book and try SMS that way it will not show me that option if there is no phone numbers attached to that contact. So why does it not work like that from the SMS section?


I have a Blackberry 8520.


Best Regards,
