Multiple contacts for the same person on my Note2?

    Whenever I try to call someone I type their name into the text field of the Contacts page, and I typically end up with multiple (sometimes 4-5) entries for the same person, and only one of them will have the actual phone numbers. The others might have a single email address. I never created all of these different entries, and I did not previously have all of these when I used an iPhone 4S. Any idea why it does this?

    Thanks.

    It's because it pulls them in from multiple sources and doesn't combine them by default. You need to go into the contact, edit and then "link"
