    I have a Galaxy S7 from Verizon on Android 7.0 Nougat. My contact app sorts just fine by last name. But the Messages app (use the yellow icon one) - sorts contacts by first name. I found no way to change the sort?? Is there a way to change the sort? This changed with Nougat update.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    Very simple. Open your Contacts. Tap on the 3 dots in the upper right corner. Tap on Settings. Then tap on Sort by and you'll be given the options of how you wanted sorted. Thanks.

    Firedept10 -- this doesn't work. Even if the contacts list is set for last name first name, it doesn't populate the message app's contact list that way. In the message contacts list (click on the message app, then click on the orange icon with a pencil in it) the entire list is first name last name. Even worse, while in the message contact list app, there are not settings to change the order to last name first name. I have a galaxy s7, and this unwelcome change occurred after the most recent Android update -- G930VPS4BQG1 Version 7

    I'm more bothered by you even looking at the contacts list in the messaging app. Just start typing the name and it will come out. Or go to contacts, and swipe over the name of the person you want to text. Swipe to right to call and swipe to left to text.

    Apparently this problem is not yet resolved.
    I am puzzled by ChanChan05 reply. Why would you want to type when you can just simply check with one stroke?
