maybe there is an confusion about "joining" and "merging" contacts.
When I join contacts I easily can unjoin(separate) them but once a contact is merged ( f.e. with google) then i cannot "Unmerge" it. there is no option for this. It makes sense because merge actually means make one out of two or more. Join means build a group inside a contact. So I think once you merged your contacts then you can't undo that.
hope this helps

I forgot a hint: If you have merged your contacts and you want the same contact in your phone and in f.e. google, then simply copy it to your phone again. Now you can join it with your google contact, so you still have both, but DO NOT merge it again.

I did same and have little g as (google Icon) near every contact.


There is contacts.google.com page where you can administer your conctacts. I just go to More>Restore contacts...

This will open dialog with this explanation:

"You can restore your contact list to the state it was in at any point within the past 30 days. This is a great way to recover deleted contacts, undo an import, or undo a merge."

Before restore contact backup your contact list on your phone (to .vcf file) as I did on my Samsung Galaxy SII...
