    I just purchased this phone and the contacts was downloaded via simcard but a lot of addresses didn't come down with the transfer so I am trying to put them in but I can't figure it out. Can you please help me? :)

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    If you check in the Android Market you'll find several apps that will pull contact information off of sim cards...

    I've had my Inspire(tm) for a while and my contacts are a complete mess thanks to all of the "sync" and "cross link" and "fritter" and "bird book" and other sources of names+numbers that have loaded themselves auto-magically into my PEOPLE app.

    There is a feature that I think is called "linking." In addition, there are various ways to have more than one phone associated with a single person. It seems that "linking" finds matching details among various people and ties the contacts together. At one level, this is fine when I enter a person's name and linking finds their Fritter and Bird Book accounts. However, it is a real mess when it collects all of the contacts that work for a common company and make a mashup of all those details. Spread this across everyone I thought I knew, and ...

    [hightlight]... you get a complete mess ...

    Feeling similar pain,

    once you have a mess, is there some way to clean it up other than
    edit each contact?

    Can someone recommend a really good, feature rich contact manager and address book app?
