    OK, first of all... Hi everyone.
    I am very new to this android stuff. I used to have the iphone, but decided to switch over. Now, I have a very newbie question.

    How do you sort the contacts to "Last Name" first rather than "First Name" first?

    hmm i just tried to fool with the contacts now and didnt see that feature.

    you can try other contact apps in the market, sorry i dont know of any i am good with the stock contact thing.

    thats the great thing about android, if you dont like something or it doesnt do what you want you can find a app the will!

    Thank you Culo77.... I'll shop around for the Contact apps on the market..
    can't believe a simple feature like that is not on stock app.

    Star Contact was recommended elsewhere on the forums as a good free contact app--I've had it about a day or two, and I definitely think it's a big improvement, though I might shop around a bit. Unfortunately, I don't think it has the function you're looking for, but the price is right if you want to give it a try.

    Sad to say, in the 3 days I've had this phone, I've come to believe almost everything negative I hear about Sammy's stock apps. Like the phone itself a lot, but it really needs an update...

    Not bashing you , but things like this are well explained in the manual that came with the phone . Always remember that with android, every app you want to customize , or add info to , the menu button is your best friend .

    ..as this thread is about contact settings, here my question...
    - Where does andriod2.1 save new contacts?
    - can you choose where to save?

    ..cause I just added 2 new contacts, but after i search them, I cannot find them in contacs. But if I open sms app and insert the just added name, it pops up, thats strange. I thought, perhaps after restart, it

    Again the information you are seeking is in the manual and the menu button is still your best friend ...

    Just downloaded it--listed as "aContacts"--and I really like it. Had been using Star Contact, but I think aContacts is better, better looking too. Thanks for the recommendation. :)

    Thanks for the great answer i had no idea what that book was for. I had to delet the contact and redo. Thats where i was getting stuck. Thanks again for the help. I didnt think you were bashing me i just figure you didnt know the answer. Why have a forum when you can always find an answer somewhere else.
