Another separate contact is not created when importing a contact from Outlook with the same information as a saved one on the SD card but the contacts have different phone numbers.

Repro Steps:
1)  Updated Buri to Build ID: 20131010004001
2)  Create a contact on hotmail that has a first name, last name, phone number and an email address.
3)  Create a contact on the phone with a first name, last name, phone number and email address. Make all the information exactly the same as the one created in hotmail except make the phone number completely different.
4)  After creating the contact, tap on the "Settings" icon in contacts.
5)  Tap on "Import Contacts".
6)  Tap on the "Outlook" button and sign in with a hotmail account.
7)  Select the contact that matches the one saved on the phone and tap on "Import".
8)  After importing the contact, look at the contact list.

Notice that a separate contact wasn't created. The phone number of the contact that was saved on the phone replaces the phone number of the matching contact imported from hotmail.

The hotmail imported contact is created on the phone as a separate entry since the phone number is different than the contact saved on the phone.

A separate contact entry is created when the matching contact imported from hotmail has a different phone number.
The hotmail contact had the phone number in the "other" field and not the mobile field. So when i imported the hotmail contact it merged the contacts. I thought i was seeing a bug but after changing the phone number on hotmail from "Other" to "Mobile", the functionality worked properly. A separate contact was made so I'm closing this issue.
