Question about Sanyo MM-8300
This is an annoyance really, but a large bunch of numbers that I have entered in my phone book are not alphabetical. It starts out fine, then after names starting with S jumps back to L again and I have a whole second group of names. This is a real pain when scrolling through for a particular name! Any ideas how to fix this?
Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; http://us.sanyo.com/wireless/handsets/downloads/MM-8300UsersGuide.pdf (Sorry is the US version, hopefully the bits we are dealing with are the same) Check page 53 of the pdf (page 37 of the manual), the numbers should automatically alphabetise, there is no setting to change. you can store up to 300 contacts, so possibly if you have exceeded this limit, the others are being stored in another part of the memory. If so the only solution is to thin your phone book out a bit. Check page 161 of the pdf (145 of the manual) for info on updating your phone, try this in case it is a software bug that has been fixed by an update. (even if updated recently, try again, the latest update could have caused the problem). Check page 106 of the pdf(90 of the manual) and try the reset - this doesn't delete the contact list, so is probably worth a try, but fairly unlikely to make any difference. Here's the link for the troubleshooting guide from sanyo; http://support.sprint.com/main.html?&selectedDeviceId=5712&manufacturer=Sanyo I couldn't find anything else in there but you might have more luck. If you need to contact sanyo direct, your closest is in NSW; http://www.sanyo.com.au/ They may be able to tell you something not in any of the documentation, and where to get it serviced if required. If you connect the phone to a pc and have the phone book synchronised with something on the pc (MS outlook or similar), then you may be able to swap them around from there. I searched a lot and couldn't find anyone else with the same problem. Hope this helps :)
