Hi all, just had the latest update, ONE UI 4.0 ANDROID 12, on my Samsung Galaxy S21, and now the alphabet that used to be visible in the contacts list on the right hand side of the phone, going down, is gone now and is replaced with dots so I'm unable to go straight to the letter to find the contact I'm looking for. Does anyone know how I can put it back? please

But that is an extra step. Why?

This is just plain DUMB! Samsung/Android - you are *****! Why make things MORE complicated/un-userfriendly??!! Morons! It was perfectly fine before this dumb 'update' now it just makes things WORSE, and more importantly, an additional useless step thast was not needed. You ***** BROKE something that wasn't broke and worked perfectly fine before, now it's just awkward to use and just plain dumb.

PUT IT BACK THE WAY IT WAS!!!!

Samsung you need to sort this out ASAP!! Why remove the letters what a stupid thing to do. Why make things harder.. its like when they removed the camera background blur.. but yet the most used thing is a camera 🙄🙄🙄🙄 who thinks of these silly changes? 🙄

I totally agree. Before update we just tapped the letter we needed.  Now you keep having to slide up and down to get it to finally stop on the letter you are looking for.........  Much worse and takes MORE time when we are in a hurry.  STUPID STUPID. Put it back!

Thanks for the helpful workaround, but cannot be regarded as a fix. Cannot get my head around why Samsung have degraded valuable functionality. (Phone is Galaxy S20 5G - not found in associated products!)
