    You can link multiple contacts together in BlackBerry 10. What is the usage of this facility? I tried linking some contacts and it worked weird.

    I use it to combine information from the same person which is stored in different accounts (gmail, FB and LinkedIn). That way that person will only show up once in the contact list with all the information.

    The problem with linking contacts is that they will no longer appear in your phone app contacts list. That's why when my phone automatically linked my few common work and Facebook contacts, I had to unlink them so my wife's contact entry would show up in the phone app.

    The purpose of links sounds logical, but the execution is screwed up.

    That's strange as I don't have that issue. All contact details are shown
    Multiple email addresses or phone numbers for contacts. Only contactpictures are giving issues in some cases

    What version of BB10 are you running? I'm on 10.1.0.4828.

    If I link any contacts, then go into the phone app and call up the contacts tab at the bottom of the phone app, the one I linked will not be in that list. But the other 250 some odd contacts will be. Unlink that one contact, and it suddenly reappears in that list.

    To be clear, I'm talking about the phone app contact list, not the main contact app. That's (mostly) fine.

    I'm running 10.2.1047 so that's one difference and indeed I was referring to the normal contact list. Didn't check the contacts via the phone App. Will do to see if that is showing something different. Keep you posted.

    Please do. I haven't heard anything about that particular issue being fixed in 10.2 yet. And I do try to keep up with what's going on in the leaked OS forums. I just haven't jumped on 10.2 myself. May do it with the next leak because I know AT&T won't offer it until some time next year at their speed.

    I checked for you and as far as I can tell right now, all my FB contacts are there including the onces that I have linked. When selecting those, the multiple phone numbers appear.

    By the way, I installed the leak instead of waiting on my provider. It is really easy and in 30 min your phone is back up and running again. I think the full swipe took more time than installing the leak

    I used it to lump all the Operators into one contact and customize the ringtone and notification for this contact.
