    Default Changing Contact Sort Options

    Is there a way to change the sort order for contacts? Mine is displaying First Name, Last Name. I would like Last Name, First Name.

    I had to look around for it but on the leaked 2.2 when you add a contact you are asked to display name by first name first or last name first. For your current contacts you have to edit each one you would like to change.

    While using the the leaked 2.2 you hit edit on a contact then tap the contacts name and select how you would like the name to display.

    Sort your contacts

    Froyo only: Want to change the way Android sorts your contacts? Maybe you like last names first. Or what if you want to only see contacts who have phone numbers. It's easy to do. Here's how:

    Once you're in the contacts application, press the Menu button. (That's the little one that looks like a series of four lines.)

    You should see six new buttons. Press the "Display Options" button.

    You're now in the options menus for your contacts.

    From here, you can tell your phone to only show contacts with phone numbers, sort the list by first or last name, view contacts by their first or last names, and choose whether to show contacts from all accounts connected to your phone. That's handy if you don't want all of your Facebook friends showing up in your contacts list.

    Note that carrier customizations may break this feature.
