My issue is similar to having a ME profile (it is in a section called ME), but not the same. None of the answers to this question worked for me. I believe the principle difference is that I cannot delete the "My Info" profile. This profile originally did not have my name or email address anywhere in it. It had my phone number listed twice, both with the "Mobile" category, and both 11 digits long (with the leading 1).

My other problem is that the answers say that I should reinput the "faulty data", but I have no faulty data. The data is correct, just listed twice. Is it possible to merge this account or get it recognized as the Google+ profile?

    Exact same for me! I looked again through all of the solutions in the link you listed. I had missed this suggestion, which worked for me! I hope it works for you as well. -Mike

Answer originally from here: How to edit the "ME" contact?

  1. Open Google+ on your phone.
  2. Go into Settings / Your Name [email protected] / Contacts.
  3. Check "Keep contacts up to date".
  4. Go into Settings / Sync / Google.
  5. Disable Contacts Sync. Wait a few seconds, re-enable it.
  6. Wait a few more seconds, and the My Info entry should now have a Google+ connection.
