Smart Dial by company?

    I previous phone was a blackberry, which had seperate "fields" for first name, last name and company - so all of my contacts are stored as such. This has translated on my Hero to first & last name showing up under "Name" which is fine, and the company showing up in the "organization" field.

    Frankly I don't care what google/htc calls it as long as it works, but the problem is that it doesn't if I am trying to dial someone. Lets say my insurance agent is Joe Smith with Progressive. If I cant remember his name and just try to dial progressive, smart dial doesn't recognize it and I get nothing for results. Now I can make a new entry with Progressive and put that in the "name" field, but that won't work very well if I have multiple contacts at a specific company.

    I have looked at aContacts but I don't like the fact that it loses the standard htc look and feel. Are there any other options or apps that will force smart dial to look at company as well?

    Same issue here - it isn't like my memory is getting any better with names! We all know that each phone has its own strengths and weaknesses (hey, that's WHY we are former BB users!) but I sure miss some of those 'shortcuts' that were in the contact (people) list. We MUST be missing something somewhere!
