The Contacts interface orders the name fields as following: Last name, First name

On the iPhone, the order is reversed: First name, Last name.

Can this be adjusted so the order matches?

Please do a Google search before asking questions for simple stuff. – duci9y Sep 17 '12 at 15:29
I tried Google first. Before adding such comments it would be good to provide link at least. – sergtk Sep 17 '12 at 19:16
  • For the iPhone you can adjust the order of fields in Preferences -> Mail, Contacts, Calendar
  • For iCloud you can do the same by opening the Contacts web app and selecting Preferences (cog wheel in the lower left corner)
