  2. contacts showing up with wrong names

    I've included a screenshot:
    https://1drv.ms/i/s!AioJJwemG-Tg1Pl9pjLHfjp69P2VEQ
    The contact in the top left corner - her name is not "Allen". She and her show up correctly in my Contacts app, and they're not linked in any way... so it has to be the People card/page in the Launcher that's missing them up.

  5. Too many phone numbers in business contacts

    Seems like contact info is combining mobile phone number based on pots business numbers . So if you have 20 people from one company with the same general number you get 20 mobile numbers for one contact. Also the image will be wrong. Please disable!!

  9. People incorrectly links contacts that are not linked in my contacts (outlook.com).

    The people widget incorrectly links contacts together which are not otherwise linked. For example, and only since recently, my wife's picture shows up but with my name under it. Selecting this contact shows a combined contact with both her and my details. No other contacts list (Outlook, Contacts) shows these as linked.

  11. contact shortcuts do not work correctly,

    contact shortcuts do not work correctly, only know this because you prompted me to make one, so I did and it was incorrect information, for instance, text # correct, other contact info incorrect.

  14. contact widget

    Contact widget lists every phone twice: once in international notation and once in local notation.
    e.g. for a contact with those numbers:
    03-1234567
    050-2345678

    Contact widget will show 4 numbers:
    031234567
    +97231234567
    0502345678
    +97250234567

    note that it also stripped the dash from the original numbers.

  15. People widget keeps cleaning itself automatically. It is useless this way.

    I manually add people to the widget, but from time to time it cleans itself.
