ContactsBook: Changing the order of contacts

The contacts are usually ordered by name but you can rearrange the list by Organization / Color / Creation Date / Birthday / or you can use "Drag and drop" to create your own Custom list.

1. Arranged by Organization

In order to change the order of the contacts, tap the center button on the toolbar. Choose "▼Organization" in the "List Sort Type" menu.

Organization names will be sorted in alphabetical order. If you have used Chinese characters, they will not be sorted correctly.
