    I have a BB Storm 1 OS (platform and my contacts are not auto-filling when I go to compose a text or email. Wait, let me clarify... Some contacts are auto-filling and some are not. There is no rhyme or reason to what is going on. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I am considering backing up contacts and data and re-installing OS. Can someone tell me what that will do to all the apps I have downloaded to my Storm? Will I have to reinstall those as well?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    no need to reinstall OS if only contacts are missing. just use the DM backup & install the file with your backed up contacts. it won't affect your apps.

    Actually, my contacts are not missing. When I open up Contacts directly, I see all of them but, when I go to compose, they are not showing up when I start typing a name.

    I also need to add that when I go into Contacts using it's icon and start typing in the Find box at the top, not all show up. I can scroll down and see them but not all will show up. Example: I have a contact named Sam. I type in Sa and I get Sarah and Sabrina but no Sam. I backspace to remove the S and the A and just scroll down to the S's and I can see Sam along with Sarah and Sabrina. Does that make sense?

    Also, I have checked and I do not have any Filters applied to the address book.

    ok so your contacts are actually there but not showing up when you start a message; i see. yes i would reinstall your OS after you've tried all of the above.

    Strange. This just started happening to me today too! i have official VZW OS. Haven't changed any settings. So when i compose an email, select the first letter in the To field, my contacts don't show...only happens in email.

    Did you ever resolve this problem? It started happening to me last night and I've been unable to find a solution.
