Merging contact information

Merging contact information

Avoid duplicate entries by merging contact information from different sources, such as your social network accounts, into one contact.

Accepting contact link suggestions

When HTC One finds contacts that can be merged, you’ll see a link notification when you open the People app.

  1. Open the People app.
  2. On the People tab, tap the Contact link suggestion notification when available. You'll see a list of suggested contacts to merge.
  3. Tap next to the contact you want to merge. Otherwise, tap to dismiss the link suggestion.
Tip: If you don't want to receive contact link suggestions, on the People tab, tap > Settings. Clear the Suggest contact link option.

    • Under Add contact, tap one of the options to link to another contact.

Breaking the link

  1. On the People tab, tap the name of the contact (not the icon or photo) whose link you want to break.
  2. Tap > Link.
  3. Under the Linked contacts section, tap beside an account to break the link.
