    hello all

    having trouble viewing contacts (>1300) on the phone:
    1. when i view my contacts by group, i can't figure out how to sort by last name (figured it out for all contacts view)
    2. i have a number of contacts with a company name only that just don't show up on the phone (some do)
    3. a few contacts are showing up in the wrong group (i.e. in the correct group with google contacts on line, but different group on the phone)

    on the phone
    -I have display options set to sort list by last name and view contact names as last name first
    -i have all google contact groups set to display including "All Other Contacts"

    thanks

    -bill w

    anyone?
    would it be more appropriate to post in one of the software forums?

    I have been looking for a solution too and coming up empty. Are the contacts saved to google or to the phone or a combination?

    Perhaps the app Contapps would suit your needs better?

    thanks for your replies

    started with the original palm pilot and kept adding from there
    add 100 or so a year and it's not that hard to get over a thousand
    not tracking facebook etc

    seamless upgrades for the most part until now
    i exported from palm to CSV, then imported to outlook
    and sync'd with google using Gsyncit

    so i'm syncing between google contacts and phone

    Perhaps if you were to delete all of the contacts, and then take the origional CSV file and import that into Google Contacts Manager on your computer, and then let it automatically sync with your phone. Although I don't have nearly as many contacts as you do, I did it this way and it worked perfectly. YMMV.

    thanks
    will give it a try
    although the contacts are fine on google contacts, they just mess up on the phone
    just to be sure, the main issue is that i can't get the phone contact app to sort by last name in the group view
    only
    can you?

    Yes, mine are sorted correctly. I have mine sorted by last name but they display First Name Last Name. My business only contact also show up in the correct location.
