In Contacts, is there anyway sort my contacts by first name instead?

    I like having the person's last name in the field, however, most of my business contacts, I can't on the top of my head remember their last names and I'm having to scroll searching for my contacts by first name. So, can I "sort" it by first name? I really don't want to not have a last name either, because some people in my contacts have the same first names.

    Thanks.

    Thanks so much. I went there earlier, and didn't find it - strange. I'm guessing I didn't scroll further down. I appreciate this. Thanks so much!!!

    No.

    :p



    Seriously, it's best to keep it around so that other people with the issue can search and find the solution.

    One of the first things I do whenever I break in my iPhone.

    That, and also add the Emoji keyboard. :)

    This helped me actually, now my contacts look a lot more coherent!

    I have some people by first name only and no surname so it make much more sense for me this way :)

    I know huh. It makes much more sense to me sorting by first name. I can't even remember some of my friends last names without me having to scroll the entire list to search for their names.

    I can finally sleep tonight.
