    Switched defective Atrix to a new one, and though AT&T transferred my contacts to new Atrix, it's all under 'Phone- Contact List', not under 'Contacts' at home screen. Not too big a hassle to retype everything, but just wondering if there's a way to just switch all numbers back to 'Contacts'. Hate to have to scroll in my phone log to get a number... Thanks!

    You have to create a backup then import the backup to move them. Go into contacts, select menu --> more --> import/export --> export to sdcard. Then go in and import from sdcard. But when you import select where, I usually select gmail so it will sync with gmail. It should then go in a link all the contacts, so you do not have doubles. You can also delete all of the contacts after you have them backed up and then import on a clean slate.
