    I jsut recently noticed that Google upgraded the web based contact list with the ability to view by the last name. Is there a way to do this with my Android phone? :rolleyes:

  2. The Android Lounge might get more responses to your question than the generic Lounge area. I've moved your thread for you.

    Depends on what version of the OS you're running. (Filling in the "Device(s)" area of your profile is very helpful.)

    In 2.2, and probably 2.1 (I can't recall), you can set each contact to which name you want it sorted by. Open the contact, select Edit, at the top there will be a text box; select that. It will have entries for First name, Last name, and a drop down box to select how you want the contact displayed.

    Can you do this for the entire contact list all at once or do you have to go one by one? I just got my EVO yesterday and all my contacts were list by last name first. I have always listed with first names first.
