    Alright, So CrunchSMS is a free SMS texting app, that changes the UI for texting on a blackberry. I followed their instructions to get it to use your contacts in CrunchSMS. "options -> security -> encryption -> disabled"

    unfortunately it will only locate like 5 contacts, so any SMS that I received from someone, will show up as just their Phone#. Pain in the ***, because I have to cross reference the number with my saved contacts.

    So i noticed if I remove a contact and then re-add that contact in the blackberry, CrunchSMS will notice that change and instead of showing there Phone# it will show the contact name. Exactly what I am looking for.....

    So instead of manually doing that for my 90+ contacts, I decided to back up my contacts, wipe my phone. Install a base .591 OS, download CrunchSMS from app world. Once that was setup, I rebooted the phone, and then restored my Contacts. Thinking it would be the same as manually re-adding the contacts.

    Still nothing, only 5 contacts will show up or I can have more show up, if i delete the contact and re add.... I am currently out of ideas, i like the UI for CrunchSMS and don't want to give it up, but i may have to. Does anyone have any ideas, or suggestions.. Please

    shot in the dark, would be to make sure the encryption is set to allow contacts or disabled all together...... I am synched with Gmail.. i wonder if that might be my issue...
