Here's what I do, I always give my wife's e-mail address and address book
entry on my phone a name that starts with a letter that will make it the first
one in my address book. For instance, right now I have no addresses that start
with an "A" in my address book, so I aliased my wife's e-mail address as
"Babe". She's always the first one in the list. :-)
