If you signed into your Google account on your previous Galaxy S4, your contacts were automatically synced to your account. To retrieve them, just sign into your Google account on your new phone and they will automatically appear in your Contacts app.

How to merge my contacts on my S4 Samsung Galaxy?

I know that on my S3 I joined the contacts and all was fine but now I bought a S4 and there is a link option but it does not join all my my different accounts like WhatsApp and Facebook act it creates a separate user for each contact on my phone which ends up creating 4 or more duplicate contacts of the same contact for each application that user is registered on..

Samsung S4 - when on a Contact page, can I change the order the info is shown?

i.e. Ringtone is not really as important as the Notes category. thus I'd like to move the Notes category higher on the page than, say, Ringtone, or Groups. I'd like it below the telephone numbers. Any chance of that?

Is there space for additional contact information?

Is there somewhere I can add information to my contacts like addresses and emails? As it is, it seems like there's only room for a name and phone number...

If you are saving your contact to your SIM card, then only name and number are available, you should save them to your Google account or to your Samsung account (providing your mobile is a Samsung).
