Re: sorting of contacts on z10 with OS 10.1

Hi diwe63,

 

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.

When sorting your contacts by last name, they should be listed alphabetically by last name, however you would see them listed as First Name, Last Name sorted alphabetically by last name. This is by design, so you will not be able to change how they are displayed in your Contacts application. Let me know if that helps.

Thanks.

Re: sorting of contacts on z10 with OS 10.1

Hi FS,

 

not really.

 

I coppied all contacts to my handsfree (2 different types) in my cars via bluetooth. It seems that only one field is copied with bioth first and last name in it.  So the handsfree is not able to sort it by last name because the first word in the field is the first name.

 

I have used a lot of Blackberry's with different OS in the past, but I never had this "feature"
