    One letter here, too. A friend at work had the 7100 and had the same problem, though.

    My 7280, 8700, and my 8703e all do it by first letter.

    I wonder if a software update, or something is needed. Try pulling the battery, and then 'booting' up again, and see what gives...

    the phone is only 2 months old and has the newest software. i dont think pulling the battery will help either because it has did it since day one, and the battery has been pulled a few times since then

    ...it worst. I would call the service provider, and see what gives.

    Wait, do you have "content protection", on? If yes, try turning it off, reboot the device, and then try it...

    My 7130 does the same thing. Two letters to get the contacts to come up, I was wondering why one letter didn't do any good.

    Just got mine last week from Verizon, not sure it that makes a difference. It may be one of those things that is locked down by the carrier...

    I could be wrong here, but this may be a SureType issue. It seems that those with SureType models are having this issue. I can't remember how it worked on my Pearl.

    is sure type where it tries to guess what you want? if so i hate that feature and i turned it off!

    navilyn,what is content protection and how do i turn it off?

    tmag. i dont think it is a malfunction that they would replace it for... i think it is something RIM designed into my device to annoy the he!! out of me with!

    SureType is the style of keyboard you have where 2-letters are assigned to each key. The BB predicts what word you are typing. It actually works pretty good. The secret is not to watch the screen as you type. Wait until you are finished and you'll see most of it is right.

    If you wat to disable it, open up a message like you are going to compose an email, then go to options. I can't remember the exact phrase it says, but you should see something like Enabale MultiTap or something.

    yeah i turned off multi tap the day i got it.... the suretype was what i was not sure of what it meant. i dont think the suretype has anything to do with it though because my fiance has a 7100g and hers only needs one letter and it shows all teh contacts.

    Go to Options / Security / General Settings / Content Protection - but to be honest if you don't know where it is, you probably did not change it in the first place, thus it's still at it's default...

    content protection is disabled..... is that howit should be? what would happen if it was enabled?

    That's how it should be. If you enable it, caller ID does not work correctly if you have a password for your device...
