    Question Contact problem on Blackberry

    Advertisement



    I am having bit of a problem on my blackberry.

    Here is the problem :

    I am trying to add a contact to my Address Book/Contact lst, whatever you want to call it.

    Thing is, I want it to show in my Address Book listed by there Nickname, not by First&Lastname.



    When I enter the application on my Blackberry, called Contacts,(everyone has this on there Blackberry, so you should know what I am talking about)

    I select New Contact.

    It brings up the entry form to add a new contract.

    They say Title, First , Last, Picture, Company, Job Title, Email, Email, Work, Work 2, Home, Home2, Mobile, Pager, Fax, Other, PIN, Work Address : Address 1, Address 2,City, State/Prov, Zip/Postal Code, Country, Home Address : Address 1,Address 2,City, State/Prov, Zip/Postal Code, Country, Birthday, Anniversary, Categories, Web Page, User 1, User 2, User 3, User, 4, Notes, .


    But where is the Nickname entry spot?

    you can only sort them by first, last or company name

    i suggest maybe adding the nickname as the company name and then sort them that way

    How do I sort my address book ? Mine are by alphabetical order with the First Name.

    What I would do is simply put the nickname in the "First Name" field.

    In your Contact List, go to Options > General Options and select how you want them sorted. You cannot sort them by nickname though. Only first, last, or company.

    Yeah. I guess. Seems like the only way it would work.

    It does as Chokem showed, but you cannot sort your list by nickname.
