    I have a new Moto X from Sprint and the phone is great. However, I find it amazing that the Dial Pad completely lacks the ability to resolve numbers as I type names. Before anyone jumps to respond that this is now a setting in the latest version of Android, please don't bother. I looked. The option to enable Auto Complete is simply omitted on this model phone. Gone! How can this be? I called Moto Support and got nowhere. Only an apology. Can anyone recommend a viable workaround?

    Certain skins and phone companies put that feature in, but the stock OS 4.2.2 doesn't support this. However 4.3 and 4.4 does support this feature.

    Yep. I'm running 4.2.2. I'll be watching for Kit Kat. It's a minor inconvenience but drives the wife crazy.

    The lack of this feature is one of the head scratchers for me. Same with any kind of quick reply for any of androids stock messaging apps. Just seems to simple and effective to leave out.
