    I'm seeing reports that Froyo brought the ability to sort contacts by last name, but I can't get to that option at all on my Droid 2.
    I'm in contacts, I hit menu, but there is no option for "display options", just display groups and settings, neither of which help.

    This is probably due to NinjaBlur... Yet another reason why to stay away from manufacturer UIs...

    Really? My old Droid running 2.2 has this option now. It's right there in the display options.

    I don't know where else it would be.

    Does Droid 1 use NinjaBlur?
    I don't have anything labeled "Display Options"

    Naa, NinjaBlur is the nickname they gave the new MotoBlur that has been appearing on the DX and D2. It's lighter but still, from what i hear, not that appealing.

    Here's a screenshot of my D1 with Froyo and the ability to sort by last name. I just went to contacts then hit the menu key and then display options. Your phone should have the same option.

    Everyone keeps posting that, but this is what I have,
    Add Contact - Backup Assistant - Search - Display Group - My Info - More
    +Manage Accounts +Settings +Share Name Cards +Import/Export

    No Display Options

    Display Group just has filters for Gmail, Facebook, Phone, Favorites---

    another fail for MotoBlur. Sorry man, didn't see you had a D2.

    I have a D1 without MotoBlur. Looks like you'll have to be patient until the D2 is rooted and ROM'd.
