Just got my phone yesterday and got it activated this morning. Took that long to activate it because I got it through Wal*Mart and they are redacted. If anyone here hasn't got their phone yet, I don't recommend Wal*Mart.
So anyways, it's just taken me waaaay too long (in my humble opinion) to figure out how to add a contact as a recipient in the text messaging interface. I kept typing her name, expecting the entry from my contacts list to show up, to no avail. Looked through all the settings, trying to figure out what in all crap the problem could be. I finally had this thought: "Well this would be really stupid, but maybe it won't let me select her unless I change the phone number type to 'mobile' from the dropdown. Can't hurt to try." It worked. Are you serious? Do I really have to change every contact to "mobile," a feature of contact lists that I never use, just to be able to select them as text recipients? Is there maybe a setting somewhere to disable "enforce only being able to interact with people based on the selected contact-type"? Does anyone else think this is dumb or is it just me? Thanks in advance for a reply.
