Contacts - joining SIM and Gmail contacts
Just recently got the S3 and had synced all my contacts from my gmail account. I then exported all these contacts to my SIM card (so it's only on GMAIL and SIM, not the PHONE) and I noticed that the phone automatically 'joins' the contacts together, so they have a gmail icon and a SIMcard icon next to their names in contacts. I could never do this manually with the SIMcard contacts and Gmail - it just seemed to do it automatically one day (it only joined half the contacts when I first started using the phone and then a few weeks later I checked again and it had automatically joined all the contacts with the same names)
Then today I had to reset my phone. I re-synced my contacts from Gmail (again, have contacts on just Gmail and SIMcard) and noticed that the contacts are not joining automatically, so they are separate contacts even though they should be one and the same (so if I make it display 'All Contacts' it will show duplicates in the form of Gmail contacts and SIMcard contacts). I tried to join them manually but whenever I go to the Gmail contact and click join, it doesn't display the list of SIMcard contacts to join.
Does anyone know how this works and why it automatically joined it before and why it isn't working now? Is there a way to join the SIMcard contacts with the Gmail contacts?
