    see, i made a contact with email address only because the person is using ipod touch so he gets the message as iMessage, if i type that contact name it doesnt show me in 4S but in 4 its working

    I see, so it's not predicting/offering the name from your contacts?

    I'm afraid i can't help, I have tried it on my iPhone 4 and it works correctly.

    I just tried it making an email address contact only and it works fine on my 4s.

    Try resetting using the power + home button?

    This. Titles like this, clearly aimed towards getting as many people to see the thread, certainly have me not interested in helping...

    Helping on MR? This forum is obviously for arguments and debates. This, your post and the one before it is the most obvious example. Lol

    1. Reboot/restart your 4S.

    2. Stop making thread titles so overly dramatic.

    3. Enjoy your iPhones.

    I've helped (or attempted to help) many people on here. You are free to look through my posts. You are also free to disagree that the title of the thread was deliberately designed to get the most hits. I was merely stating why I am not even interested in trying to find out what the issue is.

    Yep, while I don't completely understand your reasoning I understand what you are saying.

    What confused me is why someone would go out of there way to post to say they will not help. I'm not asking cause I don't care, just confused me and something I see a lot on this forum (not just you). :)

    Well, in my case, it's not so out of my way. I post here while at work. My options are browsing elsewhere, twiddling my thumbs, or posting here. None of them are very productive choices LOL!

    Maybe you should look to see if English is the first language of the poster before you accuse him/her of sensationalizing the title.

    I thought the title was a bit over the top also, until I saw that the OP was from India.

    I wish I could help the OP, but I only have a 4S and I don't have the same issue.

    Don't forget bouncing things off the wall. I do that a lot too. The thumbs thing always messes with my mind.

    clearly the op's first language isnt english. Surprised so many people have jumped on him for this. Yes it isnt disgusting but dont put the guy down for it.
