My Galaxy S on 2.2 shows all the letters, hmm. So you actually have contacts that start with those letters? – Matthew Read Feb 3 '11 at 0:43
Sure I have!!.. – eagleye Feb 3 '11 at 22:11
what's your language/locale? do you have 2.2? – Matthew Read Feb 4 '11 at 20:08
locale is english(usa). No, it is 2.1update1.It is a strange problem – eagleye Feb 5 '11 at 8:31

This was a problem on early Galaxy S roms too, but it got fixed in the later updates. On the I5500 the low display resolution could prevent from ever showing all the letters. My advice would be to check for firmware updates from Kies, or try a custom rom.

Letters don't show to save space ... but if you slide your finger slowly you will find all the letters showing in the middle of the screen
