    Hi,
    I am using a Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus phone with MIUI on it.

    I have 3 different Google accounts on my phone, one for each family member. All have different contacts on them. Some of the numbers are saved on more than one account. My problem is that in the call log and also on WhatsApp, the contract name is taken from a family members account instead of my account.

    In example:
    Contact name on my account: Danny
    Contact name on account number 2: Benny's friend.

    The call log and WhatsApp show the name from account number 2 instead of name from my account.

    When getting a call, the name shows correctly.
    I would like to fix the problem without changing the name to the same name on all of the accounts.

    Thank you

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you need the contacts from the other family members to be on the phone? If not, go to Settings>Accounts, select their Google accounts, and turn off Contacts sync.

    Hi,
    Yes I need them to be on the phone, but I want the contact names in the call log and WhatsApp to be taken from my account.

    I'm assuming the primary account (i.e., the one that you set the phone up) is yours, right?

    Yes, exactly.

    Hmm, I'm not sure if that's possible. I'll have to defer to others on the forum to see if anyone else knows a solution -- good luck!
