    I linked a contact from my gmail to a contact that was transferred in from my old phone (lg rumor 2). Now the contacts name doesn't show up. Instead, the full gmail address (aka [a bunch of gibberish] @gmail.com). How do I change the name on the address book to use the old phone contact instead of the gmail contact name? I tried adding a nickname to the gmail contact under "edit contact" but all if did was change how the person's name shows up on gmail chat on my computer.

    Thanks!
