    Hi there, I am having a couple of issues with phonebook and people.

    First issue - I have is that I have imported all contacts from Outlook - there, these are all stored as Surname,Firstname - however the desire has these stored as FirstName,LastName and while I can alter them individually I can't find a setting to let me change this on mass.

    Second issue - I have created a group of contacts- of people I need to send my new number to - however some of these contacts have "send message to" for both a mobile and a landline number - hence I have sent texts to landlines as well as mobiles - can't see anyway of editing this to have mobiles only

    Any help appreciated

    1: The best thing to do is make all your contacts the Google type. Then in your PC browser go into gmail > contacts and edit them there. Much quicker.


    2: With handcent (a better sms app, go download it its free) you can set it to only show people with mobile numbers.

    Then simply create a new message, and it gives you a tick box list of all your contacts, so you can easily mass sms them.

    Does anyone know a way to change all people so they are listed by surname without editing all 350 contacts?
