    So John called me and I went to save his number as a new contact. A pop-up box asks if I want to link the number to an existing or new contact, I select new. I get the edit screen where I can enter John's info and hit save.

    For some reason, John's new phone number is linked with Johnny, an existing contact, instead of a new separate contact being made. I tried it two more times but I John's cell number keeps getting added to Johnny's info.

    Interestingly, the Johnny contact has all sorts of other Johns among my contacts into one jumbled up contact, a mish-mash of all the Johns I know and stored in my phone.

    Anyone have this problem? Anyone know how to fix it?

    That's the first time I've ever heard of this... It sounds like MotoBlur is trying to find an association and simply is associating by similar sounding name.
