Hi all, new here. Been using a Galaxy S3 on VZ for the past couple months, having switched from an iPhone 4. Lots of struggles so far, with a ton of issues. The issue I'm trying to fix right now is repairing the (ridiculous to me) "joined" contact syndrome. Don't know what that feature is intended to do, but it is FAR too easy to accidentally "join" contacts. Now, I can't "unjoin" them. When I select a contact that I discover has been "joined", and on the menu select "unjoin", I do get the two different actual contacts listed with red check marks to the right. However, no matter what I do, the contacts simply will not unjoin.
Can anybody help here? The lack of any real native synchronization capability with any of my long standing communication apps prevents me from any other easy solution. I've searched different forums, and google in general, but have found no solution whatsoever that works . Before long, I'm going to have to blow away contacts and manually deal with this.
BTW, the phone was recently (and without either notice nor option to avoid) upgraded to 4.1.1. I'd also like to understand if there is a way to prevent these upgrades without being able to control the scheduling. This upgrade caused me issues and was at a very inappropriate time.
