Does anyone know how to sort the Contacts on a Galaxy Note 8. The option does not appear to be available under Settings, or anywhere else. I want to sort them in surname order as I did on my Note 2.
Solved! Go to Solution.
My Galaxy S8 has a sort by option in contacts /settings. (Find by contacts/ 3 dots at top/ settings) However, the Galaxy note 9 has NO sort option in contacts/settings. It sorts them randomly by surname or christian name. I got around this by putting in all names as, for example:-
It's a bit more time-consuming, but works. Hope this helps until an update fixes this omission.
The Galaxy s8 does have a "sort-by" option, but the Galaxy Note 9 does not have this option in contacts/ settings. (find this by contacts/3 dots at top/settings) .
I found a way around this by changing all of my contacts to surname dash first name for example:-
This works until an update fixes the omission. Hope this helps.
Go to contacts, hit the 3 bars on the top left of the screen, then in that pop up window, hit the little gear at the right top. This should open an option to "sort by."
Hope this helps.
I found it. To sort the contacts you have to open the app "Contacts" (not "Phone"-app!), than klick on burger-button (3 minues) on the left-side. Then klick on gear wheel at the very top. And you are now in the settings of contacts. Here you see the needed setting menus: "Sorting" and "Name format". Enjoy it.
