Re: Sorting Contacts by last name

Go to Contacts

 

Click the Blackberry logo Key (located left of the trackpad)

 

Click on "Options"

 

Choose the first option "Contact Display and Actions"

 

You see a "Sort By:" option. Then Choose "Last Name"

 

Hope it will solve it.

Re: Sorting Contacts by last name

I tried this. It still sorts alphabetically by first name. The last name is listed first, then the first name is how the sort happens Eg The name "Smith, Anthony" gets listed before "Redding, Bob" because it sorts on the first name. Hope this makes sense!

[ Edited ]

um i sort it with last name and had no trouble like you are experiencing.

 

ok lets do this way: 

 

 1) Sort the contacts by "Company" and save it. Close the contacts. Reopen it  (Usually saving it as "Company" sort the contacts according to last name alphabetically, if this didnt happen continue the second step)

 

 2) Open the Contacts again and this time change the "Sort by" option back to "Last Name" and save it. Close the contacts and reopen it and see if it has sort it correctly

 

See if this will help you

Re: Sorting Contacts by last name

Tried this. Doesn't work. My data was imported from my previous sim card. Does this make in a problem?
