    On my 650 I was able to simply start entering a contact's name from the Phone screen and it would automatically bring up contacts and find the name I was typing (no need to select Contacts from Phone screen first).

    I'm not able to do the same with my 700p, and am looking for a way to enable this (been through every menu I can find...). What am I missing? This feature MUST still exist...

    Your help's appreciated!

    Setting is in the phone app's display preferences. Enjoy.

    Yeah. Phone app -> Options menu -> Phone Display Options
    "Typing starts contacts search"

    Then, if you want to toggle that setting (type to dial a number,) press the Option key before typing the number.

    As Fofer said, the behavior has changed with the 700p. When you want to dial by number you'll have to type the Option key first.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Thanks, Tony and Fofer. I've had my 700p for a couple days (read: LOVE IT!) and this was my only frustration thus far. I'm loving this phone!
