    Smile [Greek/Russian alphabet] search contacts in side bar

    Hi to all of you.First post but long time reader of the forum.

    I have the following problem with iPhone:

    I have approximately 700 contacts in my phone but everything is in Greek.So when I go to contacts menu all of them are listed below 123 and you do not have the option to use the sidebar in order to get directly to one letter (for example φ(f in greek)).So you have to scroll down all the way to Φ(f in Greek) which is a pretty long process when you have a lot of contacts. The strange thing though is that all contacts are in perfect alphabetical order but as I said listed all together under 123.

    So the thing is : Has anyone managed to have the Greek or Russian,Chinese (other than Latin ) alphabet in the side bar so you can search your contacts directly and not scroll all the way down?


    Thanx guys and especially Sassha for the wonderful silver sim guide

    Not much of a solution to your problem,but just a tip.
    Do what i do in my iphone.Rename every contact and switch every first letter to a latin one.Not that pretty but at least its working.
    Till we find a real solution

    Not acceptable solution for me since this means that I cannot search my phonebook in other phones since there will be mixed latin and greek characters...
    I think that people who live in Japan and China they would have the same problem,so it seems logical that they would have bother to find a solution..

    According to this:

    http://www.ripdev.com/ruproject

    they have found a solution to search contacts with the side bar using the russian alphabet.So this solution could be implemented to all other alphabets others than latin..
    Will anyone would try to do how this is done?
