    Hey everyone,

    I need some help here. I used to have a 8730e and just got the 9530 storm yesterday (love it!). When I had my old phone, I used to have issues with desktop manager, so I downloaded google sync so I could sync address book over the air with my gmail account. It did a two way sync and everything worked fine. In my phone it's set to sort contacts by First name, and my contacts come up as normal.

    Here's where it gets weird. If I load contacts, and start typing a persons name, for about half my contacts, you have to type their first name, for the other half it's last. So my address book looks like this for example:

    Adam Smith
    Bobby Charles
    Chris Jones
    David Reno
    Alex Chow
    Betsy George
    Candice Apple
    Donald Smith

    All made up but just an example. So it sorts by first name, but it does half my list then starts over. The weird thing though is for half of them, if I was to start typing "adam" it would say no contacts found. If I type "smith" it will go to Adam Smith. Then if I type "George" it says no contacts found, but type "Betsy" and it goes to that contact.

    The strange part though is if you edit any of these entries, they are all set up the same, first name, then last name. So it's not even like address book has them backwards.

    I backed up my list, then restored it onto the storm last night, and the storm does it too now! So something is messed up. Because I can't sync to my desktop it's hard to fix it. I have a mac but could never get pocketmac to work on my old phone, downloading it now hoping it will work with the storm. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this though?

    Somehow fixed this, got pocketmac to work and did a sync to my desktop and back, seems okay now.
