    The old Treo trick of searching contacts by typing the first letter of the first name followed by several letters of the last name works on the Pre.

    So to find 'John Doe' you can type jdo

    This helps especially with family contacts or those with common names.

    I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but I didn't see it.

    That's what I do, based upon my Treo experience. Also, I frequently find it much easier to open apps by typing the first 2 letters of the name, rather than the Launcher.
    Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy

    Treo600 --> Treo650-->PPC6700-->Treo700P-->Treo755P-->Treo800W --> Touch Pro-->Palm Pre --> EVO 4G

    I could be wrong, but I'm thinking this search method is patented by Palm. It's the best way to locate contacts.
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    I only wish you could do this from the phone keypad in the phone app so you wouldn't have to open the keyboard.
