Does 4.1 fix the slow email-address autofill when typing a name?

    It's been driving me a bit bananas on my iPhone 4 where I type a friend's name in the email box and it takes probably a good five seconds for their email address to actually populate.

    Does anyone know if this is resolved in 4.1 It's REALLY annoying.

    I don't know if that's a common problem or not, but I have an iPhone 4 and this isn't a problem for me at all. Names show up almost immediately.

    Hmm... very odd. Well it's been a problem on mine and my wife's iPhone 4s since launch. We have email addresses saved to our individual contacts, and typing their names often (not always) results in a slow pickup of their email addresses.

    Weird. I haven't seen it either on our phones. Have you closed all the recently used apps and powered down the phone recently?

    Only server side Exchange lookup takes any time on mine. Local addresses are instantaneous.

    It's very slow on mine too. I have all my contacts set through Google.

    I have this issue also and it still remains in 4.1 for me. I have my contacts synced through MobileMe. Do you?

    It seems like it's waiting for the contacts to download again before it fills it in. I did a test that kinda confirms it for me.

    If I have my data turned on and try to fill in an email address it takes a couple seconds. If I put my phone in airplane mode and do the same it's instant. Not sure why, but that's what happens.
