    Default How to Edit a contact's name

    Thanks in advance for your help. I am new to Android. I imported all my contacts and joined them where needed. However, I have no clue how to edit a contact's name after joining them. Any pointers?

    Welcome.
    There should be a little picture of a pencil looking thing at the top of the screen if you are looking at the contact info.
    Tap that and you can do whatever you need.

    I am polymerized tree sap and you are an inorganic adhesive, so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off me, returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you.

    Are you trying to edit a "read only" contact (ie - Contact retrieved from Facebook)? Those you can't edit.

    It was a contact imported using the ATT address book. When I joined this person's 4 contacts it chose "Betty Smith (home)" as the contact name. I'd like to delete the "(home)" part. BTW Betty Smith is not real, lol!
