i've been a bit frustrated at my windows mobile device lately.  i've been dealing with my issues for a while and finally got around to asking some questions (some yet to be answered though).

one thing that i'm confused about is how windows mobile prioritizes the user to display when calling someone from their contact list.

for example, let's say I have Chris Smith with a home/mobile number and his wife Sarah Smith with a home (same) and mobile (different) number.  if i scroll to chris' contact record and click to dial on the home number, windows mobile displays sarah's contact card when dialing as if i dialed her.  it happens without fail.  i would have suspected it *not* to do that, but even though it clearly isn't using the contact card i selected, at least i would have expected it to default to alpha sort...but that isn't right either.  i'm stumped on that one.

another thing that bothered me was the options on the today screen for appointments.  i don't want "upcoming appoingments" or "next appointment" i wanted "upcoming appointments for today only" -- not the absolute upcoming ones (windows mobile showed me tuesday appointments while i was on vacation on friday).

well, problem solved...someone pointed me to , a FREE utility for windows mobile that gives me (among other things) greater control over the today screen options...see:


it's pretty cool -- i'm going to play around with it for a few days -- if anyone can explain the first issue, i'd be delighted :-)
