I found it available in some and not available in some. May be I have not searched enough. I used Llama or tasker and have not changed. May be time to take a second look.

This feature is built in in Cyanogen based phones. You can define different profiles, with which radio to on, what sound modes, which application notification you wish. Then based on Location/Wifi availability it will automatically switch the profile for you.

Also, how do I add new contacts to the new phone without it getting carried over to my personal phone?

Thanks in advance.
Create a new Google account for your office phone. Problem solved.

How can Facebook contacts be synced with phone contacts in MotoG 1st gen and 3rd gen? Samsung used to sync Facebook contacts with phone's contacts. I'm unable to do the same with MotoGs.

I got a fantastic deal at Reliance Digital Xpress store. Check it out. Also, I would suggest you to go for 64 GB variant as the difference in 32 and 64 was minor when I bought my S6 Edge.

In settings, accounts, you can choose your FB and choose what to sync as this is still android. The settings should be the same.

Else it should be available within contacts, settings, accounts to sycn.

If you can create a google contacts and sync everything into a google account and merge, you will have easier and better portability.

1+ upgraded the OS from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 and my speed dial list has disappeared from the foreground, is still available somewhere inside the menu and the camera has lost it's fast/rapid focussing ability. Twiddling my thumbs now awaiting fixes to come through.

Absolutely ! Being a neutral store, they accept any phone in exchange of any phone. I got a more than expected exchange price for my Note 2.

Doesnt the S6 Edge have major battery concern. My friends are hardly getting over a day and they envy my S5.

I have an upgrade coming up and i am thinking of picking a LG G4 over sammy thanks to their new design.

I use the fone as is, hate adding armour and covers for it makes its heavier than my cordless and loses the point of using them as cellphones.

i may end up getting a note 4 instead which is the last best thing and that upgrade is free for me as well.

Anyway..may wait to see Nexus 5 2015 as well.

Agree with VW2010. I have a Note4 that i am very happy with.

S6 Edge: planning as a gift to my husband and he prefers something which fits in his shirt pocket

My S6 Edge battery last at least 1.5 days with 70% internet usage, even with the QHD resolution. Besides, S6 Edge is currently the fastest charging Android phone, based on various tests carried out. So I dont think there is any issue.

Best resolution display (577 ppi), gorgeous Edge notifications, fantastic camera, and 5.2 inches screen size, Corning Gorilla 4 and few more factors in favour of S6 Edge sealed the deal for me. Even I had LG G4 on my radar for a few days, but ruled it out compared to Edge.

Lastly, S6 Edge has some nice to have features like Finger-print sensor & SamsungPay. Though these are not deal breakers, but are good to have. Also, LG does not release Android updates as soon as Samsung does it for its devices.

Apart from what VW2010 stated, is it possible that In contact to display (App People-> Contact to Display), you have selected only single account ? Can you check the setting if facebook also included.

In pure Google OS, you can't as Google & Facebook don't talk to each other since ICS. You will need 3rd party apps.
