You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. setting up skype (or icq or something else) protocol
2. merging contacts
3. reflashing (or re-adding) and setting up the protocol again, edited contacts
are not recognized properly.
Contacts should merge automatically with the existing / edited ones. Existing
contacts with same nickname/username should be recognized!
New additional contacts are created. Even if you merge manually, there are
dublicate fields with same name and same data.
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
Extra protocol plugins for conversations and contacts (extra repository)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US)
AppleWebKit/532.5 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/220.127.116.114 Safari/532.5
Thanks for reporting this.
This needs way more information...

Okay, i`ll tell only about skype. (But i would like to notice that there is
same propblem for another protocols)
1. Setting up skype protocol.
Menu->Settings->VoIP and IM accounts->New->Skype
Enter name and password, signin up and in contact appear contacts from skype.
2. Merging contacts.
I have phone numbers for some of the skype contacts, so i open skype contacts,
click to the title and click "merge contact". After that i select a contact for
merging. As result a have a contact with field "skype" and this contact
recognized by n900 skype account and have status of avalibality.
3. I delete my skype account from n900. Add add it again (as in step #1).
Open contact which a made (by merging phone and skype contact) and see that
this contact isn`t recognized by skype account properly: it haven`t status and
it isn`t showed in avaliability list.
I thins cause of this situation is that created account only download contact
list from server and doesn`t scan existing contacts for appropriate fields.

for skype calll.

Contact isn`t recognized by skype account.
There is field skype but there is no avalibality status and i can`t make a call
o send a chat message.
Also, instead deleting and reading skype account, i can select account as
diabled and after that again enable it. In this case there is a same problem.
This is a job for the Magic merger:
If I understand correctly when you reflash or delete and recreate an account
contacts are split. This is how it's supposed to work. Contacts cannot be
magically merged again based on the nickname as you could have multiple
Why would one reflash without taking a full backup or delete and recreate an
No, the problem in that contacts which have a skype field don`t recongnized by
reflashed or reinstalled account. Look at screenshot, please.
