    The new OVI contacts is horrible. It will very likely lead me to purchase a Nexus One for use with T-Mobile instead of the N900 as my next phone. In an incredible blunder – they allowed someone to remove fields from the contacts. Most notably they removed the company field. I had a majority of my contacts as a company – e.g. GEICO Auto Insurance – not as a person. When they switched to the new OVI contacts style – ALL of the contacts I had with just a company and no first/last name were DELETED from the database. They are still in my phone – BUT WON"T UPLOAD ANYMORE since the database rejects the ones with just a company.

    In addition – the new interface IS MUCH WORSE. Of the fields that the OVI contacts deemed worthy of retaining – many are not displayed by default. You have to go through the extra step of getting them to display. The old interface had tabs for home, business and notes/groups. The new one doesn't.

    This new OVI contacts version from my perspective was a terrible blunder. I was looking forward to using the website to transfer contacts from my 5800 ExpressMusic to a N900. Now I will likely buy a Nexus one and download my contacts information from gmail – where I already have many of the ones that were deleted from OVI contacts.

    So not only did the change make me unhappy as a Nokia customer, it likely lost me as a customer. Two thumbs down, Nokia, on your redesign of OVI contacts.

    To update my previous post, OVI contacts now has a field – organization – that replaces the previous company field. All my old contacts are there, the only thing missing is for organization to be added to the index they have [all contacts A B C D E F …. Z], so that "Fast Pizza" shows up under F, rather than just under "all contacts".
