I'm pretty sure that the WM contact list honors the "File As" setting that you use in Outlook or on your phone. I don't think there's any way to override that.

Re: Help With Contact Manager!!!!

yes there is 2 ways to over ride that;

A. directly from Outlook
  1. In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
  2. On the Address Books tab, in the Name list, click Outlook Address Book, and then click Change.
  3. Under Outlook Address Books, click the address book that you want to change the contact display format for. For example, click Contacts: Personal Folders or Contacts: Mailbox – Mailbox name.
  4. Under Show names by, click File As (Smith, John).
  5. Click Close two times.
  6. Close and restart Outlook.
  7. To verify the format change, in Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Options.
  8. On the Preference tab, under Contact and Notes, click Contact Options.
  9. In the Contact Options box, do one of the following:
    • Verify Last, First in the Default "File As" order list.
    • In the Default "File As" order list, click Last, First.
  10. Click OK two times.
B. directly on the phone; works on all phones to my knowledge

download the .cab onto the phone and you can change how contacts as displayed (including having company shown)
