Unhappy [Q] How to join more than 5 social contacts on single contact

Hello,

I recently purchased the Galaxy S2 phone and one things that annoys me is that if you have a friends that belongs in multiple social networks, you can't join them all to his main phone contact. For example i have a friend's gmail contact on my contact list and i want to join his other contacts from facebook, twitter, last.fm, skype, myspace, whatsapp, linkedin etc.. (for those who don't know, by installing the official social app on your android you get the option to list those contacts on your phone contact list)... Well the problem is that when i try to join a 6th contact i get the message "unable to join contact. maximum number of joined contacts is 5"

I know most of you will problably say use another app for your contacts but i really wanna know if anyone finds it annoying and has found workaround... maybe a tweak to increase the limit, an upgrade or another app that adresses this issue....I really don't wanna use a 3rd party app for my contact list...

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks,
Dennis

You can try and do it in gmail rather than your phone

i would be interested as well.
i use google contacts, facebook, twitter, google+, skype and facebook is listed twice, once for its own app, once for social hub and i recently found, some of my contacts that in fact use all the services cannot be merged into one contact anymore, as that would mean, merging 6 contacts.

the sgs2 has great social networking integration, but why set this stupid limit that serves no one? the feature of merging contacts is supposed to combine all online activity of one person into one contact.




I started working for a new startup blog: AppFeedback. If you want your app professionally reviewed, please pm me.

+1 on this..
There should be some way to increase the counter on the number ( or remove it completely) for the number of contacts that can be joined..
As the number of social/communication apps grow so do the contacts on those that you would want to link
