    Sorting contacts on Motorola XOOM android tablet according to First Name

    My cousin had taken my new Motorola XOOM android tablet for his office purpose. When I get back that tablet, I found that contacts are sorted according to the Surname. I need to change the contact list in the order of first name. Even though I use the ‘Contacts’ app inside the tablet, I am not so much aware about its settings. Can anyone please help me out to correct this issue?

    Once you launch the ‘Contacts’ app, press the ‘Menu’ key on the phone. You can then find a list of options on the screen. Navigate through that list and hit the ‘More’ button. This will bring up another list of contact settings. Locate ‘Display Options’ option from that list and tap over it once. The next step required is to tap the ‘Display contacts by’ option visible on the screen. Two options will then pop up on the screen from which select the ‘First name first’ option.
