    I rarely use my phone for more than texting or calling (yes, unusual I still use it for that!) because it’s an old phone and we all share a data plan, but thank you for the reminder to clean up my contacts. When this phone got handed UP to me by one of my kids I downloaded contacts that I had backed up and it not only downloaded all of mine but Doug’s, too. Hundreds! I keep scrolling through all those contacts. I need to purge one letter at a time!
