    Let's say I have two not-linked contacts called "Mr. Ben (FR)" and "Mr. Ben (DE)". I have to do this because otherwise Windows Phone won't let me text both mobile numbers, just the first one. If I text "Mr. Ben (FR)", the history appears under both "Mr. Ben (FR)" and "Mr. Ben (DE)". This is confusing if the contacts are the same person, but far more of a problem if they are different people.

    I'm not entirely sure how to induce the problem since it doesn't always happen. It might be if WP automatically links the contacts, and then you break the link. I'm not sure yet.

    Can anyone provide more info on the topic?

    I see. Thanks for the tip.

    More generally speaking, I still get history merging between different people with similar names, who are saved as separate contacts. That must be a bug?

    Try making the surname the same, then unlink them after WP auto-links them. History will probably merge.
