Hello All,

I have an iphone 4s jailbroken and i would like to organize my contact in differents groups like :

Familly etc...

I would like to create those groups under the Contacts function of the iphone.

However i do not want to use third party software running on my laptop to do so as i would like to be able to add to the right group a new contact i add in my phone, after a meeting for example.

Do you have any idea how i could do so ?

I looked over but it seems that most people use outlook which is a no go for me.

Thanks for your reply.

You cannot create, modify, or remove groups from the Contacts app in the iPhone. You need to use Address Book on your Mac.
I've been doing this for the past year and a half. Anyone know why Apple doesn't put the feature in to manage this in your Contacts? Not everyone uses Address Book. It's a barebones standard feature found in most phones since around the year 2000.
