Abstract: Let $ N(a,m)$ be the least integer $ n$ (if it exists) such that $ \varphi(n)\equiv a\pmod m$. Friedlander and Shparlinski proved that for any $ \varepsilon>0$ there exists $ A=A(\varepsilon)>0$ such that for any positive integer $ m$ which has no prime divisors $ p<(\log m)^A$ and any integer $ a$ with $ \gcd (a,m)=1,$ we have the bound $ N(a,m)\ll m^{3+\varepsilon}.$ In the present paper we improve this bound to $ N(a,m)\ll m^{2+\varepsilon}.$
