    Hello,

    I have three contacts that have the same phone number, but different extensions. Something like:
    Contact no. 1: 555-9999999,1234
    Contact no. 2: 555-9999999,2121
    Contact no. 3: 555-9999999,5678

    When I call any of them from my contacts list, the phone dials the number and the corresponding extension, with a two seconds pause in between. So far, so good. However:
    - During the call it's always the name of contact no. 1 that's displayed, regardless of which one was actually called.
    - If I use the recent calls list to dial a previously dialled number, it will always call contact no. 1, irrespective of which one has actually been called the last time.
    - If I call contact no. 2 or 3 and the call is dropped for any reason, the "redial" command in my car will call contact no. 1.
    - The Contacts app warns me periodically that I have duplicate contacts which should be merged.

    Is there any solution to this? Do all Androids have this annoying bug, or is it just a Samsung thing?
    Thank you.
