    Advertisement



    some of my contacts are displayed first name last name, and some are last name, first name.

    why? they were all input using the 'my contacts' field of gmail. how do i get them to be either all first name last name, or last name, first name, etc.?

    thanks.

    I know there been a lot of discussion about the way Android deals with contacts. Are you on the latest OS?

    Don't know yet, I don't have this issue. Go to contacts and see if you have duplicate contacts. I had that with mine but only on some. It didn't cause an issue with first name last name but with what i could do with the contact (ie: email,message,etc..)

    That seems strange, are they all in the same order in your gmail contacts or are some in first-last and others last-first?

    in my gmail contacts they are all first name last name. but the phone still has about 40% that are last name, first name.
