    Hey is anybody having problems with the contacts app putting different contacts into one? Nearly my complete family contacts have been merged in to one single item and also some of my other contacts were connected to it.

    You must be using a sync from one of your acct's, I find these terrible, I use contactx from BBW and once I have them the way I want I back up to my S/d card, I never have a problem. Back up pro in BBW is also very good.

    Yeah don't let the contacts app merge things automatically. 9/10 it's inaccurate.

    I have well over 2,500 contacts on my phone right now and I have always let my Q10 auto-merge contacts; and guess what, not a single one is inaccurate.

    I suspect many people add contacts sloppily. Nick names, only first name and no last name, no company name or title. If you actually took the time to add contacts with their first and last name, the auto-merge on BB10 is very accurate.

    well, at least make sure that there are no 'empty fields' with only an apostrophe or space or something there. That's what did it for me, somehow, one of the desktop clients had added a work address with only an apostrophe to a lot of contacts, which were then linked. Could be as much as 80 contacts merged that were not supposed to.
    I cleaned up the contact cards which was overdue anyways and have not had a problem since.
    I use 3 MS 365 accounts with EAS, a one.com EAS (beta) and a backup gmail on my phone, with Twitter, Linkedin and BBM contacts crowding the list as well, of course.

    Trust me I'm one of those guys who are very accurate when it comes to such things because my address book is the key for my daily work. I think it has something to do with the facebook app.
