Unfortunately that's what merge does. It merges similar contact into ONE. If you want to put your contacts into google, just go to accounts and try syncing instead.

Alternatively, export the contacts into a CSV file, merge it then import back as phone contacts.

Cheers

If you just want one contact, then just merge and create that contact again as a phone contact.... Don't understand your concern

not advisable. saving in your SIM CARD is still the best. . so if you screw the phone memory.. your SIM contact is still updated. . .
