    What has to be done for sorting the contacts by last name on Sony Xperia S running on Android OS?

    Even though my Sony Xperia S running on Android OS does allow me to add the contacts, the entries remain unorganized inside ‘Contacts’ app. I want to sort those contacts according to the last name. What should I do for that?

    Unlock your phone and wait until the home page appears on the screen. Navigate through that page and locate the Application screen icon. Once you find that icon, make a single tap over it. The next step required is to tap the ‘Contacts’ icon available on the screen. Hit the Menu key afterwards and locate the ‘Filter’ option. By tapping on that option, you can view ‘Sort list by’ option. Tap on that option and select ‘last name’.
