    ICS Update - Predictive Dialer Gone

    Is there some way to get the predictive text working on the dialer after the ICS update?
    I'm using the standard update version of ICS (I think .246).
    It used to work where if I wanted to call john for example, I would type his name on the keypad (5646) and it would highlight his name and put him at the top of the list. Now, it just says no matching contacts if there isn't anyone with 5646 in their phone number?

    I've tried to dig up info on it everywhere, my friend uses ICS on his Galaxy S3 and it has this feature, as did my Bionic, prior to the update.

    Is there anyway to get it back without downloading a 3rd party dialer?

    Okay then, how about just. Is any one else having this issue?
    I've now checked friends who have the update path version of ICS on a Galaxy S3 and a Droid Razr, and both of those phones work fine. It is only mine that isn't.
    So is anyone else even experiencing this issue on their bionic?

    Mine works just fine on .246 for example 323 brings "Dad" to the top of the list.

    Mine works fine too. Just tested it after doing a factory reset and so far everything is hunky dory.

    Well, I was having this issue too, but I just tried it again and now it's fine. I tried putting in my dad's name and it brought back 6 matches, some by number, some by name.

    Hmmm... Interesting. Thanks for the replies.
    If its just my phone and not all bionics then, perhaps I can simply fix it by some amount of resetting or reinstalling.

    Thanks guys.

    Have you rebooted your phone at all since the update? How about performing a cache wipe?

    I've rebooted many times, and at your suggestion I wiped the cache partition, which I assume is the same thing. It had no effect though.

    No, the cache doesn't clean on reboots and is good to do now and then. Hmmm.... my next suggestion would be an FDR .

    Do you have any other features that seem to be missing from ICS on your device?
