    When texting, I go to MESSAGING, NEW MESSAGE, But when I touch the "TO" field, my contacts do not appear. I know they are there since I access them for my phone function. I have to TEXT by starting in "Contacts" which is ok, but slow. I also don't like HANDCENT APP since it appears to slow down my rig. Is something wrong with my contact format? If I have to I'll go back to Handcent. but.... Any feedback for this newbie would be appreciated.

    Still Struggling

    Thanks for the quick reply CONQSOFT, you are right, my kid's DROID works as you describe. My doesn't. If I type Jill (which I know is in my contacts)for example it will show Jill then show the numeric keyboard equivalant (5455) but won''t reach into the contacts as my kid's does. I'm outgunned by a 14 year old...

    Make sure that in your contacts you have the phone number you want to text to labeled as mobile. I could not send a text to a person who was in my contact list in the method previously described (entering the name while in the text app) and when I checked I had mislabeled the number as home. When I changed the label it worked fine.
