    Is there any way to sort contacts by last name? I've checked Google and nothing seemed useful

    Is there any app or any fix?

    well it can search by name first or last name in either order, itll will mix if you are not specific enough

    in contacts hold down the menu key for 2 seconds and the keyboard will pop up

    type in the required name by first or last and it should bring it up as it did for me

    That's a workaround more than a fix, but it does help a little bit. It's not really an issue though, it's more to satisfy my OCD regarding such matters

    you cant sort b last name but can search by last name which would be just as quick.
    no way of doing what you want as far as i can see

    As far as I can tell, it's inherently a technical problem with how the names are being stored in the database on the phone and on google's server. There is only 1 name field.

    The new and (coming) google search widget will pull up all your contact that match say "jones", "smith" "doe" along with possible businesses from the web ...

    It is very powerful ... am enjoying it on my rooted G1 ... as part of the coming 1.6 OS

    is there anyone having problems when syncing phone contacts with Google??? I did it several times seamlessly, but I cannot do it today, there's some kind of problem. I can sync with Gmail and Calendar though.
    I installed QuickDial and Contacts Blast yesterday (I uninstalled the later but the problem persists).
    Server issue or my phones'?
