Default 8310 w/ AT&T: Address book question

Please Login to Remove!

I cant seem to find this with a search, so i apologize if its a redundent kind of question.. I know my phone has the "Business" and "Personal" catagories in the address book, and i know i can "filter" them so i only see one, the other, or both. BUT is there a way to have all the numbers showing, but labeled. For example

Business Contacts
Name
Name
Name
Name
Name

Personal Contacts
Name
Name
Name


and so on? I like having them all come up but would like them to not be mixed in together.

i don't think the address book has that capability but you could feasibly use the title field and label them there.

If you put "Personal - " in the title field of John Doe's name it would show up like this:
Personal - John Doe

Weird. I tried it with my phone and it put a M entry down by the P entry. Thinking about it now, it does seem weird that it would do that because you'd have all the Mrs entries grouped up and all the Dr entries grouped up. Sorry I couldn't help more...
