Contacts in the contacts application are not sorted alphabetically, which is the
norm for lists like this.

I wonder if the wisdom of "do what's expected" works here. I've ALWAYS found
alpha sorting to be a pain - my wife lists me a "1kevin" to ensure that I'm at
the top of her list.

Would it not make more sense to have a "call count" that simply keeps a tally of
how often a contact calls or is called so that your most frequently used
contacts are always at the top?

Actually, it is sorted alphabetically, but by the first letter, rather than by

That might be ok if you only have a few contacts, but if you have a long list of
contacts how on earth are you going to find the one you want?


looks like an ASCII sort ie 'C' != 'c' which perhaps it should ie case
insensitive sort?
