Mobile sort and/or filtering patterns for long lists

I need to review examples of how other mobile apps have dealt with long lists of items. Specifically what interface is offered for sorting the list or filtering the list. Ours is a mobile web application - not an IPAD, Android, BB specific app- and it is possible for the customer to have a long list of items. The list displays the item name and a number attribute representing depth. Many customers will have less than 10 items but some could have pages of items and will need a way to either sort by Name or Depth, or filter to find a specific Name. I am short on real estate on the screen but could push the list down and have a text filter field across the top. I am not sure where or how to offer sort.
Any ideas, patterns or examples on the web I could review would be much appreciated.
