If I add Andersson I get it right
But if I add aaaaaa its not right


 if (contact[i].LastName.ToLower().IndexOf(letter.ToString().ToLower())== 0)


What I am after is that every word that starts with for example A should be true. But in the case of aaaaa I get the number 4 back in debug mode. How should my if statment be to be like I want to happen?

If you only care if the name starts with the letter do the following:
 if (contact[i].LastName.ToLower().StartsWith(letter.ToString().ToLower()))

You could just use the StartsWith method, like this:
if(contact[i].LastName.ToLower().StartsWith("a"))
Hope it helps,
