1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    This is an issue I've had across 2 devices and (I think) 3 OS. I have a lot of contacts (>2000) with multiple phone #'s. When viewing, trying to call or text a contact, only 1-2 of the numbers are shown. The reason this is a major issue for me is my # is blocked. Therefore, each contact's mobile # has to be listed as 2 #'s-1 with a *82 and 1 without so I can text. In the past, I was able to swipe the contact, select text, then use a drop down to choose the "non *82" number.

    ICS only seems to have the smiley envelope option for texting, which I can't use with *82 numbers.

    VZW and Motorola's solutions for this in the past, of course have been: wipe phone/replace phone. It ain't a device issue!

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Just for the heck of it, I started removing the *82 numbers and the problem is solved. Why no one at Vzw or Moto weren't able to figure this out in over 2 years is beyond me.
