Recently purchased 2 S20 phones, 1 for me, 1 for my husband.

He updated the profile information on his phone  (e.g. profile picture and name) inside the Contacts app.

Now his profile information shows up on my phone  -- where my info should be.

I edited the profile information on my phone to reflect my name  and now my profile information is on both phones.

What controls this information ?

We are using the same Samsung account on both phones (never thought we would each need an account....)

We do share one gmail account, but also each have individual gmail accounts as well.

We've had this same setup for a while, but had older S5 phones.

so when you use the same account you are going to have the same info on both phones best way to do is to have another Samsung account on the other phone so you won't share the same info

Thanks for the help!  Since Samsung knows about all my devices and phone numbers,  thought it would be able to distinguish based on phone number, not just by account.
