    Question need help with contacts

    I know this might have been asked, but in my contacts there are multiple listing for each of my contact, for example when I go to my daughters contact and scroll through it, it show phone #, address and e-mail about 5-10 times, is there a way to only have one? plus I have added new contacts that have now been deleted and I can't find them (even when I do export - import)
    Can some one help me.

    I know there is an option to merge multiple contacts into one contact. For instance if you have created a contact and then have a second one from Facebook, you can click on the 2nd one, go into to it to edit and then press the menu button - you should get a join option. From there you then select the other contact and then viola, where you once had two separate contacts you now have one. Joined contacts can be unjoined in the same manner. Now if you mean you are getting multiple entries under one contact, I'm not sure where that is coming from. Whenever I feel the need to clean up contacts, I do it from the Google website on my PC - I find that a far more efficient process. Perhaps when you changed phones, did the carrier transfer everything for you? Sometimes that process can mess things up.

    I even tried that, I was told that if contacts go missing then to export then import them back which make them all show up, but if you go under one contact it shows up about 4 or more times, and that what I want to delete is the multiple times it in my contact;
    Any advice?

    The only suggestion I have is assuming all of the contacts are intact up on Google w/o duplicate entries, try deleting all of your contacts locally (turn sync settings off first and maybe even do it w/airplane mode on so all radios are off) and then let the phone pull everything down from Google again. Other than that I'm not sure. Good luck.
