By default, the Propel displays names exactly as they were stored. It is likely that u have stored names with last name first. If "Bob Sanders " is stored as contact, hitting the "B" button should bring up Bob Sanders and not Sanders Bob...Try removing battery for 15 secs and try again...Regards

Even though my contacts are saved to my sim and in my phone book, when someone calls me from my phone book, their name does not come up?


If two contacts in a same name are available in your phone the particular name will not display.Phone contact and sim contact are unable to use symaltanously. So, the best way if you want to display contact name is delete one contact which is in the sim/phone.1000% Ok.

How to put phone numbers on the blackberry 8120


you have 2 options. you can load them directly in your "address book" by going into your address book, menu button (bb icon left of trackball), select "New Address" and enter the info.
Option 2 , would be going into your address book, select "SIM phone book" and enter the info there.
Keep in mind, when you use the SIM phone book option, you can only enter their name and phone number, and after you are done, you have to import your SIM contacts to your address book.
Any contacts saved using the SIM option, will stay on your SIM card.
Any contacts using the Address Book option, will only remain on the phone, and not on your sim card.
ho[pe this helps!

Trouble with contacts


Was your Sim card copied to the address book?

You may have to fix the entries copied from the sim card into the address book so that the cell phone number is in the correct field as well as the names. By default it may not be properly stored into the correct fields.

Change display of contacts to first name, last name in outlook 2003


In most phones, there is an 'options' or 'preferences' in the address book that allows you to sort by first name, last name, etc.

As far as Outlook goes, when you are in the contacts tab, there is a link on the left that says "customize current view". Click on this and you can select fields to pick what fields you want displayed or select sort to pick how they are displayed.

Motorola K1 Address book alphabetisation


Do you have your address book sorted by first or last name, first/last and name/picture are the only options I have.  but when I open the address book, I can type names to jump to, one letter at a time, just like typing in a name... like 3332777555 for 'carl'.
