How to Link Contacts on Your Samsung Galaxy S 4

Now, as slick as your Galaxy S 4 system is, it isn't perfect. In this scenario, two contacts have the same first and last name. However, if the same person has a different name, you have to link these contacts. For example, if you created a contact for Bill Boyce, but your e-mail refers to him as William D. Boyce, your phone will assume that these are two different people.

No problem, though. Do you see the chain links icon in the box that says Connection? Here are the steps to link the two contacts for the same person:

  1. From a contact, tap on the chain icon.

    This brings up the Joined Contact pop-up.

    Choose the contact whose name you want to be the primary name. For example, tap the link on the William D. Boyce contact. That will be the name used on the combined contact going forward.

  2. Tap the Join another Contact button at the bottom of the screen.

    Your phone will try to help you with some suggestions. If it gets it all wrong, you can just find the other contact by searching alphabetically.

  3. Tap the Contact you want joined.

    In this case, the second guess, Bill Boyce, is the one you want. Tap this name.


The combined link has all the information on this person.
