dialer sucks. not able to type name of contact when dialing

You guys know how in wm u could type the persons name with the numbers to spell their name? Like if u wanted to call a contact named "max" u would key in 629. You can't do that in wp7 and its really slowing me down. Why would they leave out such a good feature? Or hopefully I just don't know how to turn it on, cause I really like this phone.
Btw, I typed all of this with my new hd7 and it was quick and easy. Browser and keyboard rock!

Re: dialer sucks. not able to type name of contact when dialing

It would bother me if I had a WP7 device, and if it isn't fixed by the Sprint launch, then it will bother me then.

This seems like a basic feature was left out.

Re: dialer sucks. not able to type name of contact when dialing

I hope so. Smart Dial has been a part of Windows Mobile for as long as I can remember! It doesn't make any sense that MS would take it out with their latest Mobile OS. Yes, it's supposed to be completely different, but don't take out the one redeeming quality of your dialer!

Re: dialer sucks. not able to type name of contact when dialing

Yeah I remember us writing an article stating this was a not so good feature. Stinks and I agree, hopefully that will change! :/

Re: dialer sucks. not able to type name of contact when dialing

agreed this 'feature' should be standard. I do wonder thought if it allows you to type the last 4 digits of a saved number for a short dial, much like all the phones prior to my ppc's did. it's still a habit of mine and bugs me it doesn't work.
