    Default S5 will not allow me to manually link contacts

    Bought a Samsung S5 today and it will not allow me to link contacts. Tried to remove my facebook contacts and my gmail contacts and tried to just link contacts which were just stored on the phone and still no luck. Doesn't matter if contacts have identical name or different names, the phone will not manually link contacts. Has anyone had this problem?

    I'm having the same problem - It's driving me crazy! I've tried everything! This is the first time I've seen that someone else has this issue

    Can you post a video or screenshots of what you are seeing, or the problem? For some reason it's hard for me to try to understand what exactly is your issue. Maybe seeing the video or pictures me or somebody else can help you better.

    No issue here. Contacts - pick contact - upper right hand menu - link contact - pick other contact to link - done

    I'll try to explain my issue better: (I have Facebook contacts and messaging contacts/phone numbers that I want to merge). My attempt was this: From CONTACTS, I chose an entry (the facebook one) and then tapped the 3 dots that give the "LINK CONTACTS" option. From there, it shows my list of messaging contacts. I chose the person I want to Link/Merge, - it checks a box- and then tapped DONE.
    You'd think their phone number would merge with the facebook contact, but it doesn't. And further, that messaging number entry disappears from the list. Please help - it's really annoying

    Oh! and one more thing! I tried to enter/add the phone number manually to the facebook contact and tapped the pencil to EDIT, but the screen grays out and you can't edit. WTH??????
    Thanks

    It may be due to being on different accounts why don't you try merge accounts first then link any contacts and/or delete duplicates

    When I tried just link it found the matched contacts for me
