Contacts App is absolutely awful
Ok so importing and linking your contacts on BB10 couldnt possbibly be harder / more frustrating.
When importing my contacts, it imports everyone from my address book, bbm, facebook and twitter so now I basically have over 1000 people on my list, none of them are linked together so there is duplicates and triplicates everywhere......great, time to start linking.
1. I filter the list to show only my 'local contacts'. I click on one, click links and try to add their facebook link. WELL, the list of links is also filtered to whatever filters you set up initially. So i have to go back and select to show facebook which instantly increases my list by 300 people.
2. Whichever link you have at the top of the list is ALWAYS the information it shows and you cant change it. For example, i go into my bbm list of contacts and start linking their respective facebooks, etc to that. Well now that BBM is the first link and facebook is the 2nd link and the local contact is the third link.....it will always show their BBM name which more often than not is a stupid handle or whatever. Even if you edit the name, it will revert back to the details from whatever link is at the top of the list. Wanna reorder the list, see #1 and good luck. Sometimes when you are linking, the link wont even show up on your list also.
3. When you select the filters in the contacts app, it doesnt do anything, you have to shut down the app and restart it.
4. If i filter my contacts list and go into the phone app, it shows every single contact with a phone number again, it doesnt show your filtered list....makes no sense.
If anyone has any advice for how to properly add contacts and link them please help me, im literally at my wits end with the way this thing handles contacts.
What should i do, delete all my contacts? Re-add them all through my email address book. Even if i do that, linking them to their facebook, bbm and twitter accounts is a nightmare.
