    Text message only shows number not contact name

    I just got a D2 Global, when composing a new text I type in the name of the contact...however it only shows a list of numbers and not the associated contact name. Only some of the contact names show up in the list, the rest are numbers. Anyone else have this issue or know of a setting I'm missing somewhere?

    I had a D2 prior to this one and all the names showed up with the associated number.

    Figured it out in case anyone else runs into this. Your contacts need a first and last name. Apparently this wasn't the case on the D2 where I only had first name.
