Default google search

I use google search to call and text people. My wifes name is dana and when i say to "text dana hello" the search brings up another name "andrea dana" and not my wife which is under Dana.

I then changed "Anrea dana" to just "andrea" and when i say to text dana, it still brings up "text andrea dana" even though the name is not like that in my phone book anymore.

I restarted the phone and it it still recognizing "dana" as "andrea dana".

Any advice would be appreciated,
thanks

You have to link the number/contact to your google account. Let me know if this helps.

I believe if you clear the data for the contacts app it will reload and all will be good.

Do you have backup assistant up and running? If you do, all of your contacts are going to be backed up by verizon. If you can find settings/applications/contacts, you will see an option to clear data. Make sure to run a backup assistant sync before and after you clear data. Also clear out Google search application data. Last resort is to do a factory reset. One of the most ignored feature of android is the ability to reset this computer to factory specs and have a clean smooth operating device whenever you want. Just make sure you put everything (pictures, music, etc) you want to keep over to your sd card before you reset I've reset my og dinc probably once every three months just to keep it running smoothly. I've found through many resets that quite a few applications I have downloaded, I really can pass on them when I set up my fresh device.
