Motorola Droid - Contacts Automatically Bring Up On Phone / Shortcut This Function

Been enjoying the android for almost a month with one exception. If i want to call my aunt geraldine for instance on virtually every other phone i've ever owned i can type 437 which corresponds to "ger" on a 12-digit telephone pad. I can then select her name from a drop down list and the phone calls her. The drop down list will include anyone whose name starts with g, h, or i then d, e, or f and finally p, q, r, or s. It will also include anyone whose number has a 437 in it.

I can get the same effect if after activating the phone interface i press the "search" button but then i have to use the small qwerty keyboard. Is there anyway to shortcut this function to work like a normal cell phone?

Motorola Droid X - An App - Tool That Bring Phone Back To State

Not sure where this belongs, so, mods, feel free to move it if necessary.

I came from the iphone world where itunes would do a full backup and recovery basically automagically if i had to wipe my phone for whatever reason.

Is there an app or tool that will bring my droidx back to the state it's in now, basically fully if i were do a wipe/hard reset. I am planning on doing some testing and screenshots for android support for my employer and while this is my personally owned phone, i expense the service back to them.

Any recommendations for full backup sw?

Issue: Phone Automatically Deletes All Text Messages - Motorola Triumph

This is the 3rd time it has happened to me, first time i had about 5000 texts that i lost, 2nd time was a little more and this time was only 1500. I have no idea what causing this. The first two times it was on the stock rom, and there was a huge lag of opening my app that i use for texting. This time today i have cm7 and there was absolutely no difference in opening the app then any other time. I don't see how it can be the number of messages because before i flashed and went to cm7 i had over 10000 texts in my inbox. Has anyone else had this problem, or know what could be causing this?

Motorola Droid - Automatically Mounting - How To Stop

At one time, i used to cradle my moto droid every day just to charge it. It did not "connect" the computer unless i chose to "mount" it from the drop down notification menu.

Now it always mounts and connects the computer. It's annoying because i'm always grabbing it out of the cradle without unmounting, and it's causing the sd card to report errors that windows has to fix. It's not good for it.

I can't find a menu setting anywhere. How can i get it to stop doing this? I want to cradle (in the motorola multimedia cradle) without it mounting the sd card and connecting to windows.

Motorola Droid - Way To Have Gps Turn On Automatically In Car Dock

In order to conserve battery, i have been turning gps off using the power manager app. What would be really convenient is to have the gps turn on automatically when the phone is connected to ac power (i always connect the phone to ac power when placing it in the car dock, and this is really why i want gps to turn on in this situation). In addition, i would like the gps to turn off when i disconnect phone from ac power (to conserve battery life). The power manager app has different scenarios (ac power, battery, and usb), and it has a "location" section that has "wireless" or "gps" as an option, but it doesn't let you change the default action.

Is there any other way?

Phone Contacts Not Showing In Google Contacts

Just bought a vibrant about a week ago and noticed that my phone contacts are not syncing up to google.contacts sync down to the phone, but contacts i created (or had) in the phone's internal memory do not go up to google.

The touchwiz contact app is a total piece of **** (and the only thing i don't like about this phone which is awesome in every other way).google contacts don't sync down in their former groups and i don't see any way to add custom ring-tones or pictures if they are google contacts.

Been on with t-mobile about this, and all they said was reset my phone, which i did to no avail.

Am i the only one having this problem?
