    Okay, so I went to send a text message today to a friend named Jamie and when I scrolled through my contacts and click on Jamie I see two numbers. One is for Jamie and the other is for James. The problem is only Jamie shows up in my contact list. Luckily, I had my old phone and I was able to see which number belonged to who. I tried deleting both contacts and re-adding but the same thing happened. Can anybody else confirm this or is there some setting that I am unaware of (ie. group similar names)? Not a huge deal just curious. Thanks

    you need to split them... press the menu button and split. I think you do this on the contacts edit page/screen.

    Thanks, this worked. Pretty counter-intuitive in my opinion. The default option should keep them separated and allow you to join if you want, not the other way around. Thanks for the help!
