1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    so I added facebook + gmail to my droid and now my contacts went to ****.. Literally I cannot go through them and there are almost 1000 when I only talked to a few "selected" people (I used backup assistant to transfer contacts from my old phone to this one). Is there at least a way to show phone contacts by default? maybe even merge contacts? Or better yet remove facebook / gmail access from my contacts?

    Example I now have 3 contacts for my girlfriend

    Go into account settings and go to the FB and Twitter accounts and uncheck "Sync Contacts". That should take you back to just your Google contacts.

    Your other choice is you can link all 3 Jessica contact entries into one. That doesn't solve too many contacts but you can have the phone link them together to reduce duplicates.

    There was no option for this. So I deleted facebook. Quite frankly I don't want gmail in my contacts either... I attempted to clear all the contact data but it doesn't give me an option to do so...
