I used to organize my contacts like that:

Clark Coburn
John Doe
Zachary Zemekis
.Mary Smith

The last person would be one I'd not call often and because of the dot in front of her name she would come under the # sign in index and I could scroll through the ones at the top that I call often quickly.

Now, I upgraded to 3.0.1 and it seems like this has changed and I have to put a 0 or another number in front of them to get them to go to the end and a simply sign like . or # isn't enough.

Any suggestions except to edit my whole phonebook and prepend 0 to hundreds of entries I don't want to delete but don't want to be on top?
