I bought Huawei honor 4x a couple of weeks ago and I've been banging my head on how to merge/link contacts. I got 400 odd contacts from google and facebook (some are same contacts with different names). I am trying to manually link some contacts. I choose the contact -> edit. I am not able to find the link/merge contact option. I have now ended up with multiple entries and I am not able to merge them. Where the is the link/merge option?? I have tried a lot and am frustrated.

  • Do you have a google account? Add your contacts to gmail, and try the merge in the gmail contact list. Much easier on the computer than on the phone. I am not sure how facebook contacts are managed, so try with one or two contacts first, and post results here.
