    Just updated both EVO's to Froyo and I'm aghast....

    I still can't sort contacts Lastname, Firstname

    I'm so pissed I want to dump the damn things. This is such BASIC functionality that is missing from this phone.

    That's a steal (you know, since you'll be paying the ETF to make them clean for resale and everything.)

    You can set them with the last name, then first name. Just open the contact, edit and highlight their name. It gives you the option to have either the last name or the first name first.

    Was just about to post that Jim. When you're on the edit name screen hit the "Display Name" pull down. You'll have to do it for each contact though. It would be nice if there was an option to make it default on all contacts.

    Drama Queen..

    You are not going to get rid of 2 evo's and pay the etf because you dont agree with the way your contacts are sorted. Go hold your breathe and stomp your feet.

    Can't you import your contacts into Outlook, and just resort, lastname/firstname, then trash your contacts on your phone, then move the contacts back onto the phone?

    I agree, contact management in Android is pretty weak. Not sure why Google hasn't gotten off of their asses on this one... especially if they want to penetrate the enterprise market. This is one area in which I think my BB was better...

    Doesn't mean I still don't love you EVO...

    I can when you first put them in it will ask you how to sort them you simply choose last first. Mine are all last first no problem. Just go back and fix them all.

    Why do you need to sort by last name? The contacts filter automatically in Sense.

    TLA2001 has a legitimate complaint - and it doesn't matter if it's his first post or not. I use my phone for business purposes and have several hundred contacts to manage - the Android solution needs a lot of work. Overall, I love my EVO, but it's still a work in progress with a long way to go in the contact management department.

    I still don't understand why they need to be sorted in any particular order since you can search for anything quicker than it would take to scroll around (and I guess that's Google's way of training users to always rely on search).

    +1 to this. Try it. It's a lot faster than scrolling through. Also makes the contacts widget obsolete.
