Linking Contacts?

Is it possible to link (in other words merge without overwriting) contact to other?


I didn't find anything in API Reference [here etc]...

Re: Linking Contacts?

the Contact API has a save() method that "Saves a new contact to the device contacts database, or updates an existing contact if a contact with the same id already exists"


So there is no auto-merge. It would be up to the developer to modify only appropriate values.


Suggested solution:

1) Get the contact

2) Change property XYZ, ABC

3) Save the contact
