Hey,

Just got a Nokia 6121C from vodafone, and so far so good for the most part. I imported all my contacts from google through mail exchange and look fine in contacts. But when I receive a text it puts the last name first then the first name second.

Any ideas how to change this? I have had a play around but to no luck.

Also another problem is I can't seem to get a Bluetooth modem for windows 7 on a dell XPS M1330. I know this isn't really due to the phone but just wondering if anyone has got ideas about this one too?

Hi John,

It says it is First Name Last Name.

It is first name, last name in the contact list, just when I receive txts it goes around the other way

So guessing there is no real way to change it then?

Just annoying cos in the sent items it means all the names get mixed up, if you reply to a text it has last name first name, but if you send a fresh text it goes first name last name.

I know it isn't really important, but just a slight annoyance

Sorry to bring this topic back up, thought it would be easier than starting a new topic, anyways:

The problem is since I have been on Vodafone, I can text everyone besides one person. They can text me fine (to 2degrees and vodafone) and I can text them off 2degrees, just not off my ported 027 to vodafone. Also other people can text them fine from vodafone. I am also getting 'charged' for these texts (not a big deal at all tho).

Any ideas?
