I have a handful of people who have more than two numbers they contact me from, and I find it annoying to have so many different conversations for one person. I'm looking for a way (preferably, an app) that would let me just have one 'conversation' and just change the number.

I had a phone that did this automatically. I'm 99% sure it was a dual-sim phone, so I'm pretty sure it's possible to do.


To answer your question

  • Open Contacts

  • Find Contact A's Name.

  • Click Edit and add an addition number to contact A, number Two.

  • Click Mobile, Home or Work phone.

  • Save the contact with multiple Numbers.

It's all pretty straight forward for an experienced human being... :)

  • Reloading messages should attach the two conversations as one, if not, future conversations will be marked as the same contact.

    I didn't even know that was possible... I'll keep it in mind. – Gadget Guru Nov 29 '18 at 20:33
  • This seems to no longer work on current Android versions (i.e. Android 9 / Pie). – Jason Antman Dec 27 '19 at 14:28
