A contact list quick scroll with alphabet buttons and/or a scroll button along the right hand edge of the screen.
I have 1200 contacts in my contact list. To go from the A's to the Z's requires an awful lot of screen swipes. We should be able to tap on an alphabet letter and have all of the letters of the alphabet populate on the screen so we can select the letter we want and/or we should have a scroll button that appears along the right-hand edge denoting what letter of the alphabet we're currently viewing.

Contact search or popup alphabet for quick selection. It is way to slow scrolling through the alphabet with several hundred contacts.
