Contacts Listed Multiple Times - Why??
When I open a new text message to create and drop down the contacts list to choose, some of my contacts are listed multiple times (2 mobile, 2 home, 2 work, etc). Anyone know why this is happening and how to remove it? I do have some contacts linked to Facebook, if that is relevant to the question.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I am having the exact same issue.
Same here. It seems like when I synced my contacts with Gmail, Facebook, and Verizon Backup Assistant everything got duplicated. I had to go into my contacts and manually removed the dupes. What a pain in the arse.
You will find amazing things just by doing a simple search in the forum
Removing Duplicate Contacts
^ I believe the first one helps the most
Why do ppl call our phones, "Dinc?" Makes it sound like a puny crappy phone or a sound effect when you flick something
You have Android now. Stop whining and complaining that iphone was easy/better... why the hell did you switch for?
If youre going to change phones, be sure you're able to accept "CHANGE" and yes thats a change in how things are done. Its plain and simple
Btw, have a nifty day! (^_^)
Now... wheres my beer???
The phone will try to "link" contacts from your google (and possibly other) accounts. If you have phone contacts and email contacts, they will get "linked" and thus will appear twice. You can go into the "People" application/function and "unlink" them, or delete the email/phone version of the contact for duplicates.
If you lend someone $20 and never see them again, it was probably worth it.
