    I am trying to put in two contacts with almost the same name, but it keeps putting them both in under the same name. Example, Robbie x. And Robert x keep going under Robert instead of a new contact, father son situation, any help please?

    You can put the Jr. or III after the last name and this will take care of it.

    When they are merged, apparently you can go Menu > Edit, then under Menu there is an option to unmerge them. Someone else mentioned it here on the forums, though I haven't had personal experience with this.

    Yep, I tried that and there is a menu choice called "separate". Even a better solution. You can join contacts in the same way.
