Default 8830 Contact List Dissapointment

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my 8830. been loading some 3rd party software to improve the emails and personal planner.

What is up with the contact list? I need a software that better lists and characterizes my contacts. I dont want just one single long list.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Use categories to filter/organize your contacts.

That's how it's designed to show the contacts.

You could assign the contacts to different categories and then filter the list based on those categories (or view them all).

?? After you assigned the category to the contacts, did you then filter to only view specific categories?

Yeah, as juwaak says, I think you're doing something not quite right.

I am embarrassed to say that I did not know the feature existed.
