Linked Contacts WTF


Well-Known Member
Nov 24, 2009
I have a TMob branded Hero & just been upgraded to 2.1 finally.

However ive noticed this odd thing in the contacts where it tries to LINK contacts to another contact, god knows why can anyone explain.

Anyway i use the contacts on my phone rather than my Google contacts because when i sync my contacts with Google it screws up all my pics by resizing them.

under 1.5 i could choose which contacts to display e.g phone or google but I cant seem to do this is 2.1.

This mean that unless i link the phone & the google contacts I have 2 contacts for each person (i have done a back up of my contacts to google via a csv file).

how can i get rid of this, any ideas please
