    Hi,
    Im Jon from Maine, USA. I got my droid about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it, with the exception of a couple things. Mabye im just missing something, which I know is very possible with an amazing phone like the droid. Hopefully someone can help me?

    My issues:
    -Messaging- When I go to compose a new message and I start to type in a name...it does not show that persons number or any option to get their number from my contacts just the numbers that correspond to the letters. I took my phone to verizon and noone there could figure it out either. The only way I can figure out how to do it is by going into my contacts and starting a text from there which works, but is a little bit of a pain.

    I am also searching for a calender alert like the old style nokias. I have had many nokias and i used that calender for all of my reminders. It is such a simple setup, but was so useful to me on a daily basis. I need something like an alarm for reminders, but dont want to have to set my alarm clock for every single thing I need to do. I could care less about syncing to my gmail calender, and have tried a few different calender apps with no luck.

    Thanks for any help
