Open Contacts - then under more - display options - select sort surname first and display contacts by surname first (you have to expand the arrows to the right of each).

Sorry Woolwell,

none of that pops up.

Contacts gives me a list of contacts, with 4 soft buttons, Phone,call log, contacts(highlighted) and favourites, the hard key gives accounts & synch and Status updates.

The only option has been to download a new contact app., unless you can advise further?

Thanks Bugle

There is no 'more' alas.
