    Syncing with Facebook and Gmail, and whatever else you have can yield a lot of contacts! One thing that I found annoying is that the name of a contact doesn't match exactly, you may end up with two of the same contact. Here's how to merge them:

    • Select the contact you want to merge
    • Menu > Edit contact
    • Menu > Join
    • Select the contact you want to Join/Merge with


    If you don't get any options try choosing the other contact and repeating the process. If that still doesn't work, change the name of that contact to be exactly the same as the other. This will automatically join the contacts.

    Re: Merge/Join contacts on the Motorola Droid

    I have looked all over and cannot find the Join function anywhere. Is there some other way to find this?

    EDIT: OK, I found the function, but now when I press "Join", I get a message at the top of the screen that says "Join Contacts, select the contacts that you would like to join" but then there are no names underneath to select. Help?

    Try selecting the other contact that you want to Join - I found that I couldn't join a gmail contact but I could join a facebook contact with another.

    No luck with either contact, or any contact! So far, it's just a blank page for all.

    is there any way you can backup your contacts by syncing them from your droid to your gmail? I tried this once, but it deleted some of my numbers that I didnt have in my gmail account

    Re: Merge/Join contacts on the Motorola Droid

    Is there a way to choose which contact name it displays? I have a few contacts who don't use their full name on Facebook or Picasa, and when I link that contact record with one that has their full name (such as my email or the phone contacts) it's automatically choosing the contact name.

    I've tried editing the contact and putting in the person's full name the way I want it to display it and choose save, but it still seems to be randomly choosing which name to display. When I click Edit again it did save the name as I entered it, it just won't display that.
