    My contacts list has a few double-entries that cropped up after my Facebook contacts were integrated into my google contacts. I would like to merge some of the duplicates, however I cannot figure out how. I know Google has a "merge duplicates" feature right on gmail's page however I have no duplicates in my actual Gmail contacts, I only have them on my phone due to the Facebook integration.

    Go into view contact, click the menu button, then link contacts, and select the duplicate name, this will link the contacts together into one.

    all this syncing confused me at first also, had all kinda of stuff out of whack. If you add new contacts on the phone then the person is "linked" twice once to phone and once to gmail.

    It's the same deal as linking with Facebook. Go to your contact, click menu, and press Link Contact. Search and select the Twitter username. Once you press the name, the contact will be linked. Now, Twitter updates from that person can be found in his/her's contact card.

    Does this not work for the X2? I can't find this or any other way to do it on the X2...

    It does work, but the X2 uses the new version of Blur. The way to access this is a little different.

    Steps:

    - Select your contact that you want to merge
    - Hit your Menu button
    - Select "Edit Contact"
    - Hit Menu Button
    - Select "Join"
    - Select the contact you want to join with

    DONE!

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for telling us how to merge the contacts, now how do you pick which contact picture shows up on caller ID...Facebook or Outlook? Facebook pictures seem to be overriding my Outlook pictures and many people seem to put pictures of their kids for their profile picture. Looks like I have a bunch of kids calling my phone all the time!

    The best and quickest way I found was to use GO contacts EX, it automaticallly finds all the duplicates and lets you pick which ones you want to merge.
