All my contacts are alphabetical except for one. The first name of this contact is also not in bold text like all the other font in my contacts list
This one contact sorts itself by last name when all my other contacts are sorted by first name. I deleted the contact and added it again. , no difference. Running iOS 5.1.1

Are you synching your contacts with exchange or outlook? If so check the contact file in there that it's firstname, lastname display

Hi - I found this on the apple site http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11601, but can't find the setting on my iPhone, there are first. last settings under settings, contacts, right down the bottom - have you checked those?

The name in bold is the name you have chosen to sort by, ie first, last or last, fist.
If a section of the name isn't bold move that part of the name to the first name field in the contacts/or the last name field, depending on how you have it sorted.
