Link and unlink contacts

If one or more of your contacts has multiple accounts with different messaging services, you can combine these accounts into a single contact.

The resulting contact is called a meta-contact: a contact composed from different single contacts.

Suppose you have a contact called Jane Smith who is using three different messaging services like:

  • jane.smith@gmail

  • jane_smith@hotmail

  • janes@yahoo

You can combine these contacts into a single Jane Smith one.

The way you can link your contacts is as follows:

  2. Tick the checkboxes that correspond to the Contacts entries which belong to the same contact.

  3. Press Link.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 in order to link other contacts.

  2. Press Edit in the top-right corner of Contacts.

  3. Press Linked Contacts.

  4. Press Remove to unlink an entry from the linked contact.

  5. Press Close if you do not want to unlink any more contacts.
