Contacts / Facebook Sync Problem
I'm got my Droid sync'ing to my Google account and Facebook....I have an aunt Kathy and my mother's name is Kathryn, the only thing they have in common is the first three letters of their name, however Google contacts wants to merge them into one contact. I was able to get around this problem by renaming Kathryn to FooBar, letting it sync & create the contacts, then rename FooBar to Kathryn, but when I attempt the facebook sync it puts my mom's profile under my aunt's account. Is there anyway to manually control the facebook sync'ing?

So I found that I'm unable to create a separate "Kate Rife" and "Kathy Rife" in the Android contacts, no matter what I do it merges the two contacts together. From what I can tell Google looks at the first 3 letters of the first and last name and uses that to determine how to merge & sync contacts....seems flawed especially w/o any way of manually controlling the sync.

There is an option somewhere to disable the auto-merging of accounts, but I don't remember exactly where I saw it.
