    I find that there is an entry for myself in my list of contacts. It contains absolutely no information, except my name and to use default ring tone.

    I also find that one of my POP e-mail addresses is listed as another contact. It just contains the e-mail address (and default ring tone).

    Why would these be on there? (I am pretty sure I didn't add them.) Can I just delete them, or do they need to be there from some strange reason? (Yes...I know...I could just try it and see, but I don't want to risk "breaking" something.)

    Thanks

    Sounds like they were synced from your Gmail contacts. Just clean them up there and it should sync down to your phone.

    NKT - Thanks for the suggestion. I checked my Google contacts, and these entries are not there, however.

    Check again. What you are describing fits the google sync scenario to a tee. I see it all the time if I send from one of my other accounts to gmail. It will automatically create a contact for me. Make sure to view the google contacts on your computer and click "All Contacts". I too don't see them unless I click "All Contacts".

    Ah ha! I did not know about "all contacts". That took care of one of them. The other one with just my name is not there, however. Safe to just delete from my phone? Merci bien!

    Is it the one that is in your list as "My Contact Card"? If it is I am not sure you can delete it. Matter of fact if you put your data in there and add a picture you will see it when you are text msg'ing people. If its not the contact card then yea you can do what ever you want with it.;)

    Any suggestions for a more detailed application than the "people" app that came with the phone?

    I haven't found anything yet. I guess we are stuck with People.
