Samsung Galaxy S9 Sort and display contacts by last name

If you use the Samsung Galaxy S9 as a business smartphone, it is usually more important to have the contacts stored in the contacts app sorted by last name instead of first name.

To do this, you have to change the sort order. We have summarized for you here exactly how this works:

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus Sort and display contacts by last name

Samsung Galaxy S9

1. Open the contacts app on the Samsung Galaxy S9

2. Tap on the three items in the upper right corner and select "Settings" from the context menu

3. First select "Sort by" and set the option to "Last Name"

4. Then select "Last Name Format" and then press "Last Name, First Name".

You now know how to customize the Contacts app on Samsung Galaxy S9 to sort and display contacts by last name.

The sort and list options are no longer available after updating to the new operating system. The contact name is automatically displayed 1st name 1st, but alphabetically listed by the last name. But before the update I had it set everything 1st name 1st. So now, if I add John Snow, for example, John is mixed in with all the contacts who's first name starts with S! So his name is very out of place, and the only way I have to fix it is to put him in my contacts as Snow, John. Again, still out if place, because his last name is listed 1st, where everyone else has their 1st name 1st!!!

If you put in a name Last, First it changes it back to First Last. You have to enter it as Last First without the comma. Just ridiculous. Please bring back the sort by function!

I followed the instructions, and my contacts are sorted by last names, BUT only within the contacts app. If I want to send a message (SMS) or initiate a call via viber the contacts are still sorted by first names. Is there a method that changes...

I followed the instructions, and my contacts are sorted by last names, BUT only within the contacts app. If I want to send a message (SMS) or initiate a call via viber the contacts are still sorted by first names. Is there a method that changes the sorting method in all apps (messages, viber, etc)?
