I have tried the Separate Contacts option on my ZTE Valet Android 4.1 phone. If I perform it for one contact, it applies to ALL merged contacts. I like this, but it does not seem intuitive. To separate merged contacts in Android: Open Contacts. Select a contact that is merged. Do NOT edit the contact, instead at this point click the menu option (lower ...

It is possible to retrieve your contacts as google may have backed it up. Just add your google account to the phone and when sync is enabled the contacts will be back.

This is how I solved a similar issue I had on my phone. Since the contacts in question were synced through a gmail account, I went in my contacts and exported all of them to make a backup. Then I restored my contacts via the menu (More > Restore contacts...) to a day before the one on which I believed to have deleted the contact. The restore points go back ...

There's an app for that, it's called Shared Contact List. It does exactly the thing you describe. Disclaimer: I work at the company that made it.

Using proprietary vendor-software such as Kies for backups usually jails you into that eco-system. If your Galaxy is still available, up, and running, rather use the following steps to transfer your contacts: open the Contacts app hit the menu button select "Import/Export" chose to export your contacts to SDCard (will store in .vcf format) Now you've got ...
