Is there a way to get contacts to list by last name instead of first?
Sure. Put in Last name first and First Name last.
Nice reply, but what if you imported a couple hundred contacts? Is there a way to do change the sort order?
If you edit your contacts (via Gmail or on your phone) you'll notice there is no concept of First and Last name. How they are sorted depends on how they are input or imported.
I exported all of mine out of gmail as a csv then switched them in excel and imported them back in...
I personally wouldn't consider it worth the money just for name order, but I don't know how much it bothers you--I use CompanionLink for USB sync, and it does give you the option of displaying names last name first on the Droid...just a check box, a sync, and it's done. You can always get the 30 day free trial, sync the contacts once, make a point of not making any new friends.
