How do I get the names in my contact list to be displayed WITH their organization? b/c I have business contacts who I may never remember by name but may need to contact someone from their place of business.

    Not possible with the stock Contacts app. You'll need a third-party app that displays the data differently. – ale Mar 31 '11 at 14:16

    You could put the business name in the "Last Name" field. – ale Mar 31 '11 at 14:25

This is a paid solution, but if you download Better Contacts you can get the functionality you want. And it's less than $3.


You'll have to remove the information from the name field. Then your business or your organization will be displayed in the contact list.

You can put the individual names of people in the company in the note's field. You are basically saying the company is your contact entry, not the individual.

Of course you can also have other contacts in your list by person's names. You can fill out Organization/Business info fields in those also. When searching, you'll see their names in the list.


Typing out an organization name in the main SEARCH box displays the relevant contacts that have the info in the Organization field.
