    I have 2 contacts, my Dad and Step mom, these 2 are seperate in gmail, but on my phone they have merged into 1 contact. Text messages and phone calls from either of them show as my step mother which is really annoying. Is there any way to unmerge them on the Pre?

    i've deleted them both off the pre, recreated them on the pre, but it syncs them back together.

    Thanks,
    -Jim

    Yeah, you can unlink them. When you click on the contact, click on the picture and select the account and click on it. A menu should come up to unlink them.

    Yes, they can be unlinked. The real question is what piece of data are they sharing that is causing them to link together? I assume they share a home phone number, but that alone isn't usually enough to cause contacts to merge in Synergy. Are they sharing any other contact info?

    They both had accounts/contact info on Facebook, Gmail, and my work Exchange and each of them had the same addresses and shared a home phone. So i think that is is what merged them together, I unlinked per the instructions, then linked my dad into his own account. All is fine now. Thanks!
