    I am going to move from a Razr M to a Samung Galaxy Alpha.

    I would like to start from scratch with my "People" and phone contact data. The data is currently all mucked up with people, e-mails and phone #s that have come in from LinkedIn and other Google apps.

    Three questions: 1. How do I make sure I am starting from scratch?
    2.How do I protect my phone & "People" apps from people/numbers I do not want?
    3. Does anyone have a suggestion for good 3d party contact manager that I can use to store name, address, phone and e-mail, and to launch calls, texts and e-mails?

    Google contacts, already built into your phone, is fine. Your Android phone was built to run on Google apps and services.
    You can export any of your old contacts to a CSV file, then import that to Google Contacts. Once there, you can edit, delete, and find and merge duplicates. It's easiest on a laptop or desktop - once you have it the way you like, just sync it to your phone.
