    I am an ex-Windows Phone user so forgive my ignorance of the wonders of Android/Samsung!

    Completed first task of getting my 600+ contacts into the phone and now I want them sorted by surname/family name. Go into Contacts and More and Settings and ... there is no option to sort as I want. I can't believe Android and/or Samsung are so primitive as to not offer me the option I want so I know I have missed something somewhere!

    Grateful for any help. The phone is an A5 (2016).

    I don't know what the default Contacts app is on your Samsung A5, but the Google Contacts app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droid.contacts) allows you to sort by "Last name" or "First name".

    Of course, that doesn't help if you want to sort by company name...

    Oops! Never mind.

    Contacts is currently only supported on Nexus, Android One, and Google Play Edition devices running Android Marshmallow and above.

    ... nevertheless, thanks for trying to help!

    Edit: And more than 100 people have looked at this thread and offered no help so I guess Samsung/Android won't let me order my contacts as I wish ... wow!!!
