Contacts are sorted by title, not by first name.

Good day to everybody, I recently got 2 Bold 9000(version 4.6.0.162)and I am amazed with their capabilities. However, I have faced the same issue in both units. When I add a contact, it gets sorted by title, even though in the settings it is programmed to sort by first name. If I set it to sort by last name it seems to work; however, the title follows the last name before the first name. Again it doesn't seem right. Same thing happens when I sort by company.

I have tried rebooting it, taking the battery out but nothing. If I leave the title blank everything seems to work right. 

 

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the BlackBerry Community Forum!

 

To resolve it go to Address Book -> Options -> General Options -> Sort By: First Name

Thank you for your quick response. As I mentioned, it is already set to sort by first name. However, it sorts by title.

 

Thank you in advance.

Ok...I got your point...

 

Sorry to say there is no remady to this...unless you remove the titles before each name.

Thanks for your prompt response. I hope the development team takes this issue under consideration. They shouldn't have a problem solving it.
