    I finally opened up a GMail account and imported all my contacts from Yahoo into Google. They synced down to my phone, but now I have duplicates of everyone on my phone. 1 entry for the contact that was already on the phone, and 1 for the new contact coming from Google. How do I merge these two together so there's 1 contact with the email and phone information? I remember seeing something when I first got my phone, but can't find it now.

    Go to your contacts and choose them. Hit menu then links. You should be able to link them that way.

    go to the people app,
    tap on a contact
    in the upper right corner there are 2 circles with a line "trying" to connect them,
    tap that
    go to all contacts
    choose who to merge

    or you can wait a little bit, and sense should pick them up automatically and put a notification up in the status bar. should say XXX contacts possible merge or something along those lines,
    click the notificatio and a big list will pop up.
    hi menu, link all
    then scroll down and deselect the ones you dont want linked
    hit OK, and all is well

    Thanks a lot. I noticed that the phone started finding them.

    Is there anyway though to merge the contacts rather then "link" them? Even though they're linked, it seems like there are still 2 separate entries. I'd like to be able to merge the two so the email and phone are together. Even though they're "linked", the phone information is not going back to google.

    Log into Gmail and merge the contacts there.

    The contacts on my phone aren't on gmail. Maybe that's my problem, how do I sync the phone contacts to my google contacts?
