Apparently there have been some changes made in gmail about the way you can sort contacts and such. i.e., you can now sort by last name first.
If you click on to your gmail on line you should get an update notification. I'm looking for that link which describes the changes. If somebody can go to their gmail account and post that link, it would be appreciated. I had it but I lost the darn thing.
Just post it up in this thread. For those of you wondering what this has to do with the Droid, it's a google phone and this is where your contact back ups are kept.
