    When I access my Contacts with Phone or Messages apps, the list comes up sorted by first name, as it should since I set it this way in Settings. But, when I access Mail and start a new message, they will list by Last name. Anyone have same issue and know how to change? Thanks!

    Under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars do you have both "Sort Order" and "Display Order" set to First, Last?

    Yes, both sort & display are set to First, Last as the order. To check, I changed both to last,first, and then changed back. Still observe the same result when the contacts are accessed thru Mail???

    Figured it out

    Ok, this has bothered me for days, & It just "fixed itself". I think it was after I went into the Contacts app. I would never use this, & only access my contacts from other apps. After exiting contacts, and going into Mail, problem solved! Must be some wired software thing???
