Good thought.

So I prodded the buttons, including the call button, before plugging the connector in, and pressed them again afterwards. Then chose a media player of some kind and fired it up, but...

My short and pithy answer is sync with Ovi Contacts, that'll screw the order royally. Other than that, yes, it does keep them in the order you added them, so add your best mates first.
