I am having a problem with the phone contact list on my phone. The contacts are copied via iCloud from my desktop. I have a number of entries which are "duplicates" but one is by the person, one is by the business name (check box next to "company" to signify that they should be listed by the company name rather than the persons first, last name). On my desktop Address Book they display properly. On the iPhone, it seems that the display by company name is not an option, so they end up displaying twice as the persons name. Is there any way to change this on my iPhone so that it respects the display by company name setting which is in the deskotp Address Book?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1, Sprint
