Does anyone know how to reorder the contact info?
I want mobile first then home, businesss, others, ect. In this order as seen when I go to contact in my phone. For some reason, when I synced my info, iPhone just puts it in no particular order. Some contacts would have mobile first and other would have home first. I checked my origin (Outlook and Yahoo Address) and they're organized that way I want it. But when it syncs, all hell broke loose. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot. :sick:

I don't think there's an easy way to do it, short of exporting vCards, reorder their fields with a text editor, and reimport.

Another solution is just to make favorites and select the preferred number for each favorite.

Yeah, annoying. :(

Welcome to EiP!

It does seem rather random how they're arranged on the contact list.
