    Hey Guys,

    I can't figure out how to do something that seems like it should be very basic... feel like an idiot! LOL

    If I use the Gallery application, select a picture, hit "share", the select "Messaging" from the pop up menu, I can see the picture attachment and I have a box with "To" in it.

    From here, I simply want to select a person in my contacts list to message it to but for the life of me I can't get anything to come up here except the keyboard and that does me no good because I don't remember all the phone numbers!

    What in the world am I missing??? Thanks!!! :D

    Wow! Thanks for the lightning fast reply :)

    Who would have thunk to start typing in letters where numbers are supposed to go. LOL

    So evidently there isn't a way to bring up a "list", eh? I suppose there is no NEED for a list if it fills it in automatically. :D

    If you are using handcent next on the right top where you would type the name there is a +. Hit that and you will see the list of contacts. You can check off who you want to send the picture to and then hit the soft back button to take you back to the message with the phone numbers on there
