Default Syncing Contacts with Yahoo /Linked In/ SKype etc


One feature of modern smartphoines I like is syncing your contacts, in my case I maintain different contact lists on line, maine ones being Yahoo, Skype, and Google Mail

I have had a big problem with two HTC phones (both running Android 2 in some capcity, currently an XE Sensation (beats) running Android 2.3.4 , and HTC Sense V3.0

Since my two HTCs are the only Android phones I have owned, I do not know if this is a generic Android problem, simply a Android version problem, an HTC problem or what.

After I sign to my account first time, e,g, Yahoo, Linked In, Skype, I get notification that new contacts are detected, and I go through process of linking them, most links are automatically detected but plenty need a bit of manual checking

Problem is this: every time I sign out of any of those services the links are lost and next time I sign in again I get the same message, every time.

this happens for SKype contacts, for Linked In contacts, I think for FB contacts.

On my HP Palm Pre 3, once the accounts are set up once, the linking is done, you never have to relink the same contacts again.

It is really frustraing me, I regulary have to re link about 400 contacts.

I am getting a new phone now, maybe Android again, maybe HTC, or Samsung, and I need to know will I have this same problem.

So is it an Android version problem? an HTC problem? what?
