Iphone IOS5 Question

I have a question for you guys:
On my iPhone 4, I upgraded from 4.3 to 5.0 that day it came out. I am pretty sure that I see a difference on the way contacts are imported through the bluetooth. In version 4.3, I am 99% sure that when a contact has BOTH a company name and a contact person (first name, last name) the COMPANY NAME would be displayed in my phone contact list, in the iDrive. Now, that I have upgraded to 5.0, the contact is being displayed by contact person and company name is being ignored.

Example: I want to order I pizza from Pappa's Pizza, Pappa's Pizza is not being displayed. Instead, the iDrive is displaying "Lenny", who is my contact person there. This is pretty much worthless. If I delete "Lenny" from the card on the phone, then Pappa's Pizza is properly displayed.

Would someone who is still running IOS4, please check how Companies are being displayed? Don't forget the entry must have BOTH a company name and a contact name.

Thank you.

I have an iPhone with iOS5 and a 2011 E90. My observed behavior is as as follows:

If I have both a company name and a person name in the contact, it displays the person's name. Otherwise, it displays company name or person name depending on which one is present. I have overcome this by having a separate contact for the general business and another for a person at a business I wish to contact.

Same issue. I'm not too fond of this latest IOS. I feel like I've lost a quarter of my contacts.
