    The contacts app of your android powered Samsung Prevail handset has to be opened at first. Then you have to select the menu button from the displayed application bar. There you must hit on the settings icon on the page. The ‘Sort list by’ option displayed there can then be selected. The contacts can be set to sort out by last name or first name with this option. After that the ‘View contact names as’ can also be selected. The contacts can be set to display by last name or first name with this option
