    Ever since the iOS 7 update, the custom labels I have is not alphabetically organized. How can I fix this?[​IMG]

    You can't. I want to delete some I don't need anymore, but there's no way to do that either. They are just organized in the order they are entered in.

    You can delete them with the free app iContacts+. Select any contact, tap edit, then tap the label for that contact. Select edit and scroll down to your custom labels and delete the ones you don't want. These labels will be removed from the stock contacts and phone apps after you do this. I'm running 7.1.1 and just tested it and it still works.

    Thanks a lot, Europa!
    I just did and it will help.
    The next question is now how I put back into alphabetical order my custom labels.
    I still have a lot of them, because I need them, and it's awfully complicated to go through all of them.
