    Hi-

    I like my Z10, but I'm having recurring problems with duplicate contacts being created. It seems to me that the problems are caused by:

    1) The phone's inability to recognize that certain types of strings are all the same phone number (i.e. 415-555-1212, (415)555-1212, 1.415.555.1212, and 4155551212 are all the same number) so when calls or texts or sync events happen, the Contacts app thinks all the numbers represent separate contacts.

    2) The phone seems to want to always create both a SIM and a Local contact for every contact and there is no way to turn off this behavior. There are contact records that I have manually merged, that had duplicates recreated after I merged them.

    3) The phone's automatic merging based upon comparison of phone numbers and email addresses does not seem to be working correctly

    Does anyone who is on the AT&T network, who rolled the recent update know if these problems are resolved by the update?

    The update didn't fix it for me. Mine are still a disaster.

    Thanks for the info - I guess I will hold off on rolling the update then.

    Problems with Contacts are the only major issue I have with the phone right now.

    It also wants to merge contacts simply because they have the same name. I have several contacts with the same first/last name. I need to keep them separate.

    That's interesting.

    I have the opposite problem. I have several duplicate contacts with the same first name, last name, and email address that my phone will NOT merge. And in a couple cases, even after I merged them manually, duplicates were recreated.
