I like having first name first in my contacts list. This is how I had it in previous non-Win Mobile devices.
I sync my Wing with an Outlook contacts list. That list is first name first. The wing lists last name first.
Suggestions"

Hi,
What is the order in which the contacts are displayed on the PC in Outlook?

Mine is similar. In Outlook it's set to First Name, Last name. If the contact is added via Outlook then everything is fine. If, however, the contact is added on the Pocket PC then it is added as John Smith but thereafter displayed as Smith, John. This is not good! I can go to Outlook and tell it to switch the names and thereafter it's good. But it's a pain that the Pocket PC insist on storing new entries as Last Name, First Name!
