id love to be able to merge all the contacts with the same name and the same number. i have imported contacts from facebook and my simcard (the old sim card address book is a mess really) and that has added a lot of duplicate contacts to the contacts app in jolla. id love to be able to scan the address book for multiple contacts with the same name and/or same number, email etc. and somehow merge those into a single contact.

In a way its the same thing but Im talking about a automatic function of sorts, would make the annoying task of doing it one by one a bit easier after some app adds a bunch of contacts into the address book.

You can merge contacts like this: in the People app, tap a contact then in the Pulley menu choose "link" and you will be able to pick the other contact you want to merge it with.
