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

    Hello I am finding that I am starting to have 2 of every contact I have because my phone won't allow me to update contact info for a Facebook contact. There was a "merge" option when i first got the Droid X, but since there have been some updates, that option no longer exists. Is there a good work around for this issue?
    I am running System Version 4.5.621.MB810.Verizon.en.US
    Android Version 2.3.4

    Any help is much appreciated! Thank you!

    I found how to do this

    I did a google search b/c I was having this same problem - it was annoying - I found out how to combine your contacts:

    select the contact
    then: menu > edit contact
    then: menu > join
    select the contact you want to join/merge (it gives you the similar contact-usually the FB contact)

    the name you wish to appear as your contact, should be the contact you select first - if you want the name of your contact to be the name they are on FB, then choose that one first & join w/the one you manually added into your contacts - and the other way, of course, if you choose the manual name as opposed to their FB name....

    I'm so happy I found it - my contacts are now only 1 of each, it's a joy - hee hee
    good luck

    I use Contapps, great contacts app. It will automatically merge everything that has a matching name. It uses the facebook pic as your contact pic and keeps them updated. You can manually link entries also.
