I agreed to the above posted issues which I am facing the same problem as well.
It would be difficulties to search for a contact by the stored location number.
I bought P525 on 1-Jan-2007 , it looks like the problem has been hanging since until today without any improvement or resolution.
I have 2 more problems or findings here regards to the contacts as below :
1) Copy the contact from SIM to phone , is there any way to setting for being void the contact name being changed & copy as accordance to what has been input at SIM.
For examples :
The contact name on SIM is : Lee Mun Tong
Upon copy to phone , the name will be recorded as only : Tong Lee.
2) 2nd problem , I wonder this is my software problem or the phone's feature limitation.
Correct me I am wrong. I noticed that when scroll the contact with the joystick ( Hold up or down ) for few second , the screen will auto pop up with a letter counter to facilitate your search,( this is very good feature) , but when I select the letter I need (( for examples "T" ) , it will not automatic jump to all contact name started with "T" , it will still end up at the same location. Is this normal ??
But when I copy all the contact to Phone & trying to search by scrolls with the joystick, It do works accordingly which it will automatic jump to the letter as selected. What it can't work when the contact was in SIM ?
