Why can't I make my Contacts alphabetical?

This is weird. So, I successfully transferred all my Contacts to my new iPhone6. On my old (dumb) phone I always put everyone into Contacts by their last name. So, for instance, Ann Jones was under the J's. But when it switched over, Ann Jones is now in the A's. So, okay, I figure I'm going to need to edit all these contacts. So I edit Ann Jones and I make sure that Ann is listed as her first name and Jones as her last name. But then when I go back to the Contacts list, she is still under the A's but her name now reads Jones Ann. What's with that? How can I get them all alphabetized by last name and then listed under the right letter?

Contgratulations on your new iPhone 6, Rainsayre! We can certainly get your contact list corrected. First, you can go to Settings> Mail Contacts/ Calendars> scroll down to Contacts section> select Sort Order> change to last name first. This way, it will be under J, (Jones), but will read Ann Jones when you select it.

Please let us know if this works for you.
