-Go to Contacts.
-You can merge duplicate contacts much like a magic wand.
Here's one: When automatic application updates are downloading and installing, the phone becomes near unresponsive!! I didn't notice this with ICS nor with the JB Dec leak. Anyone else notcingin this?
Same thing happened to me but rather than delete the duplicates, I used the edit feature to "join" them.
Open contacts and select the contact with multiples then choose settings > edit > join. While in the join screen, it will suggest any contacts that are similar and you can either pick the ones you want to join together or scroll through the list and pick from there.
It is a bit tedious but it definitely allowed me to celan up my contacts.
Yeah, I joined 15-20 contacts and my Contact list is back to "normal" now. Some of them, there were spelling differences on the entry name, and others there were not. Like one contact, I had 5 entries that were all named "John Doe" exactly the same (well, not actually John Doe but you know what I mean).
YellowJacket... I like it. I am sitting on Tech campus right now :)
So I just noticed that the app, which I can't remember what it was called, maybe note task or task pad? anyways, its gone and it sucks cuz I did have some things on there that I really wanted to keep. Some app or features that were actually useful have been taken away from this update which is pretty sad seeing as smartphones are usually, at least in my case, being used as PDA's.
Also, is anyone else having trouble with swype? It seems like its getting a good majority of words that I swype, wrong. ICS was pretty amazing at knowing what words I type but it seems like JB is not handling it well.
