    As I posted in a previos thread, I just traded my Blackberry (Curve) for the Droid. So far I do like it, but there are certainly some things I miss about the BB already (aside from the familiarity).

    One of the main things is how names (and other information) is displayed in the Droid, and I'm wondering if there is a way to change it (I can't seem to find a way or another thread).

    Mainly, I would like the LAST name to be displayed first (ie - Smith, John D.). The other thing is - Is there any way to get the person's company or relationship to show up under their name? I carry a lot of contacts with me when I travel from many different companies and the Blackberry did this. I got addicted :eek:!

    Any help with this would be appreciated MUCHO!

    Can you get the contacts into Outlook in anyway? Or export them into a .csv file format? If so, you can open it with Excel, switch the first/last name columns, and then rename them. Import it up to gmail (web account) and then synch it with the Droid.
