    Anybody having this contact issue, I can't have two contacts with the same names, if I do they get combined. Also say I make a contact called "John", and add another contact named "Johnny", "Johhny" gets combined with "John"...seems rediculous to me..

    Anyone notice this or have a fix for it?

    Are you creating the contacts via the Contacts app on the phone of through Gmail on a browser?

    Whichever one you are doing, try the other and see if it makes a difference.
