    Let me give this a shot

    If you have two different contact icons for the same person ie: facebook and google contact, you can go to that contact select edit contact, press the soft settings key and select "join" it will then prompt you on what contact to merge it with, after a contact has been merged if you follow the same steps above you will also have a "seperate" option in the "edit contact settings menu"

    This is as much I know about combining/merging/seperating contacts...I hope it helps

    Yup, that's how I currently separate them--thing is that some of them do it automatically, which is annoying. :-)

    Thanks for putting the word out there guys. Right now, I typically log on to the web version of GMail to add a contact just to be sure it doesn't disappear from my phone, which is tedious.

    Merging automatically I've never heard of, maybe the names are too close (Amanda, Mandy), droid must think it's just a nickname.

    Try adding cell or home after one of the names and see if it still does it.

    As far as the sync issue, that one is strange too. Don't know why it will only sync one way.

    Will try to look into this more....

    K, might have found a fix, try this and let us know if it worked, this is from the gmail help forum:

    Yay, problem solved - here's what I did:
    1. Exported all GMail contacts to desktop as csv. (10 seconds)
    2. I deleted all contacts (approx 1500) from Gmail, using the older version for the "select all" feature, which is missing in the newest version.(1 minute)
    3. I waited for the phone to Auto-Sync with Gmail. Within a few minutes the Phone's address book was absolutely empty, like the Gmail. (3 minutes)
    4. I imported the csv file into the Gmail. Within a few more minutes All the contacts Auto-Synced with the phone. (15 minutes).
    5. The only inconvenience is that if you had assigned images to your contacts for the caller ID, you will have to do it again... The sync with Facebook worked automatically.

    Now I can edit all contacts from Gmail and from the EVO 4G.

    I think the glitch was somewhere with the date(s), as all problems were with the contacts created before the 2.2 update.

    Have either of you double checked to see if all your google accounts have been selected to sync? To do this go into settings > accounts & sync > click on your gmail account. There you should see three choices: Sync Contacts; Sync Gmail; Sync Calendar Make sure the box next to each is checked. Then hit the menu key and say "sync now" Hopefully this fixes the situation

    If not (and especially for the Incredible) let me know and I can see if anyone else has had this happen to them.
    I have it working now. What had happen was that i just received a replacement phone (the speaker blew out on my original) and when I went to turn off syncing to my g-mail i must have turned off the sync to my contacts. But. everything is back to normal. Thanks for your help!!!
