Contacts Display by Last Name...
New android user here... I am using HTC Sync to get to my Outlook contacts (right now I prefer to keep them there as I always have for the last 10 years and last 4 with WinMobile).
The sync went fine and even the google sync to a shared calendar + my work calendar is working great. However...
How do I get my contacts to show up as LAST_NAME, FIRST_NAME ?? That is what the "File as" tag is in outlook but I just can't seem to find where it is on the EVO.
(PS, got the wife a moment at the same time, she loves it so far, I used Bluetooth to get her contacts off her old phone, and they were last, first but in one field so she is fine, and a very happy camper right now)
Thanks for any and all help to a new convert...

Froyo is your answer
Sorting contacts by last name is a new feature in the next version of android, 2.2 (Froyo). I can't link to stuff apparently, but search "android 2.2 last name sort" and you'll see mentions of it.
The next question is probably, "when will my phone get 2.2?" that's always the question
I had the device -12 hours when the first update came out!! (even though that wasn't really a 1.5 -> 2.1 style update).. Unfortunately, I think we can only go based on past Sprint performance to extrapolate
Haven't decided if I will root or not... (I was always ahead on my WinMo device). Right now the wife is very happy that she can actually use either phone even with the slight difference (got her the Moment, she wants a physical keyboard).
How do you add a person's picture to the contact? Does it have to be a photo on the phone's SD card or is there a way to borrow it from Facebook?
