    When using a blackberry device under contacts then notes section...if you had a name and phone # or email address you could put the cursor over that phone # or email address and instantly dial that number...on the droid I cannot do that. Is there an app for this or does anyone know how to change that. I miss that feature especially when I am trying to dial quickly.

    All you got to do is either use the search/microphone and say the name or just type in the first few letters of the name. Droid will find it for you.

    Oh and :welcome: to the Droid Forum. I just noticed this is your first post.:)

    there is no cursor on the droid. you can just click the green phone next to the person you want to call or click on a phone number in any text and it will bring up the dialer

    orrr you can use the droids search button and say something like "dial dan home" and it does (droid does)

    You say Call hookbill. If I'm in your phonebook it will call me. Or just tap the search button and type in the first few letters of the name. It's easier then blackberry.

    Hookbill, my problem is that I have a lot of contact names, phone #, email addresses under the notes sections of Contacts....For example under a contact - I put in company info - then in the notes section I have contacts at that company with phone # and email address.
    Patty – Secretary
    213-555-5555
    Patty.m@aol.com

    If I say " call Patty" it does not come up because it is under the notes not an actual contact...with a blackberry I could touch her # with the cursor and dial the # automatically. With the droid I cannot do this

    i think you need to seperate each contact because the droid cant recognize notes
    as a contact

    go into google (if you have them backed up there) then you can make them into their own contacts and even makes groups (such as each work place)

    Jeff,

    You have a problem that many have in one form or another. I haven't tried it, but you might try the app cited below. It appears to get you a bit closer to what you want. Not sure if it will take you whole route. If it works, I'm sure others would be interested in hearing from you. And if you have hundreds of contacts it's obviously worth a try compared to redoing your entire google contact list.

    Another option

    You could also try aContact in the Market. Open the app, type in your search term and it will find it in any field. It can go a bit overboard with common strings. For example, I have ICE on my family members which it finds just fine. However, it also finds words with the strine "ice" embedded in them. :)
