AbstractA wireless telephone having a first directory having assigned memory locations with indicators associated therewith. Telephone numbers are stored in the respective memory locations. A speed dialer places a call to one of the telephone numbers stored in the memory locations of first directory upon entry of the indicator associated with the memory location. The wireless phone has a second directory and a sorting unit to order telephone numbers according to parameters associated with the telephone number, the telephone numbers are stored as ordered in the second directory. There are alphanumeric identifiers associated with the numbers stored in the second directory. The wireless phone has a telephone display, and a scroller allows the user to scroll up and down through the numbers stored in the second directory to sequentially view the alphanumeric identifiers associated therewith on the telephone display. The wireless telephone also has a function setting device for setting a plurality of parameters. A marking device selectively marks one or more parameters. A marked parameter directory causes the one or more parameters which have been marked to be displayed. A selector selects a parameter from the directory to thereby change the setting of the selected parameter.
