I just tried this on the Skype cordless telephone and it does not work.
Unfortunately, I have to scroll through scores of contacts just to find the
one I need. The contact list jumps from online contacts, alphabetical, to
skypeout contacts, alphabetical, to offline contacts alphabetical.
I guess the logic is that offline contacts won't work so they put them on
the bottom. But, if that logic were true (you can fake your online status),
then why bother even listing offline contacts.
I guess the logic in putting online contacts first is that calls to them
are always free whereas the SkypeOut equivalent contacts for the same
individuals would not always be free.
So, I can understand the Skpe logic ... but I still would like a simple and
pure alphabetical order.
