    I've noticed about 2 or 3 times, when i try adding a new contact, it merges that contact with a completely random contact in my phone. if I go to edit the contact it chooses, i only see THEIR phone number. but if i view the contact it shows both contacts on top of each other.. this has happened in 2.0 AND 2.1

    why is it doing this?

    so far the only resolve i see is re-adding them both under different names. but why is it doing it in the first place?

    No. the first time i was trying to add "Beth" and it merged with "Liz"

    and the second (this time after 2.1 update) I tried adding "Katie" and it merged with "katrina" . i had to change their names to "Kate" and "Katrina B" .


    Also. when I added them. If i were to delete "katrina" it would then show "Katie" in my contacts, but the second "Katrina" was added, they again merged.

    Sounds easy to fix a couple, but if you have over 500 contacts it can be a headache.
    Does anyone know of a way to globally unjoin all the contacts at once?


    You're welcome Josh :)
