    There is a new feature in BlackBerry Contacts app called:

    • Create a new contact by typing a name and email in the search field

    If I do this in the search field of contact app (device search doesn't work at all but would be even better) and enter "firstname lastname mail@adresssm.co" it doesn't fill in the right fields - it all ends up the email-field.

    Is this feature supposed to be named "by typing a name OR email" or am I missing something?

    Don't know. Couldn't figure out that one either...

    I was so thrilled that BlackBerry at least tried to implement some kind of palm webOS-like "Quick Actions" but other than
    search for note/task/contact name and than tapping create to only fill in one field is very basic.

    It should have said "or" instead of "and". Sorry for the confusion.

    I still don't understand how this feature works. Do you?

    I believe if you search for a name in contacts and hit add, it will auto fill the name field.

    If you search for email and then add new contact, it will auto fill the email field.

    Unless I'm mistaken that's how I'm using it now.
