STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Missing shortcut to edit addressbook entry from Recent/Missed/"Select contact"
lists in phone application.
The menu only offers options to call someone. To edit you need way too many
steps. First go back to the desktop, find the address book, find the entry,
open it and then select edit from the menu, instead of going directly to
editing an entry from the phone app.
"Edit contact" in the offered menu.
No such shortcut
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124)
That's true - one can merge with a contact, but cannot easily create a new one.
Good point. Feel free to vote for this bug.
A dialog redesign is in the pipeline.
Does this apply to SMS contacts as well, or should I file a new bug?
WONTFIX for Maemo5 according to Nokia:
"Editing a contact is rare use case. It is considered as nice to have.", but
there are no plans to implement this for Maemo5 currently.
MeeGo Handset is where the unstable development is taking place. If you are a
developer (not a "normal" user) feedback about / retesting on MeeGo Handset
issues is specially welcome, e.g. via the MeeGo bugtracker at
Please note that MeeGo for the Nokia N900 is unstable and by no means ready for
end-users. See http://wiki.meego.com/ARM/N900 for more information and be aware
of the risks of trying unstable software.
