Merging contact information

Merging contact information

If you have the same contacts on HTC Wildfire S, Google Account, and social network accounts such as Facebook and Twitter, HTC Wildfire S will try to combine them automatically or let you decide which contacts to combine. Combining the same contacts avoids duplicated entries in your contacts list.

  1. Slide the Notifications panel down, and then tap Matched contacts suggestion. You'll see a list of suggested contacts to merge.
