I have a international Dual sim S20 Ultra G9880.  There is no option in the contacts menu to sort contacts at all. I want to sort by last name.

Tried  https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Galaxy-S20/phone-does-not-have-a-way-to-reorder-contacts/td-p/13...

Does not work for me. NO "Sort by" option in the menu.  What fool forgot a sort function ?

Nor is there an app I can find that sorts the phones contacts.

Please help.

Try this:

  1. Open the Contacts app
  2. Click the 3 line (hamburger) menu
  3. Click the gear icon
  4. You should see an option "Sort contacts by"

I am savey enough to have tried this. The option is NOT there. It has been removed.

Please research before giving answers.

I'm curious, does the app Contacts, from Google, have the option? I'm new to Samsung, and find the lack of this option surprising.

Some models apparently, from what I have read have the sorting option Some do not. Thus you must research your model starting with "SM-****" not "Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.".

Information is limited and hard to find. See

Would Ultra be different from FE? Found this option under hamburger menu, then settings (gear).

I do not have this menu. I wish I did. What is your Exact Model, CPU and and Rom number ?

  I am trying to find a ROM firmware that has the sort function that will work with my SM-G9880.

"Please research before giving answers."

I verified on my phone before posting. Check out the screenshots posted by @EricJRW. That is exactly what I was referring to.

Verifying any function on YOUR phone is pointless because it is not a SM-G9880 correct ?

Not all Samsung S20 Ultras are alike. Check you model number and CPU.

Thanks for trying.
