Unfortunately, the search fucntion is limited, isn't it??? IF you want to search a name that starts with a certain letter, it will bring ALL names with that letter. THIS is carzy... In my opinion, this is a serious bug/limitation in this software. Normally, we do a search on names just looking for only those starting by a certain letter. Bringing ALL names which have that letter it's NOT smart. There should be a built in option for that kind of search otherwise I prefere using the default contact software of my SE P1i. Do you know of any upgrades on this?
