Re: Out of nowhere all my contacts are doubled..

Woah!  My contacts have suddenly doubled and tripled or more. Something weird is going on here.

 

Mine were all perfectly fine until just the other day, I decided to try (in contacts/setting), the "Copy Contacts from Device to SIM Card" selection down at the bottom of the menu. 

I have gone back and deleted all contacts on my SIM card through "Manage SIM Card Cantacts", but now I have some repairing to do.

 

I'd highly suggest to avoid doing what i did, and if you already have contacts on your SIM maybe try deleting them altogether, (after  making sure they are on your phone already of course. There is pretty much no reason a Blackberry user should need to store contacts on the SIM card.

 

I'm hoping this is the reason and the solution for this problem everyone is having. Good luck.

Re: Out of nowhere all my contacts are doubled..

Same here two times this happened, the problem for appear with my GMAIL contacts. Even is I disable all other contact sources the GMAIL one remain doubled.

 

I remove the GMAIL CardDav account and reinitialized it and the doubles disappeared for now.:No:

Re: Out of nowhere all my contacts are doubled..

The doubling of contacts is a major setback. Happened just a couple of days back before that it was working just fine. I am using the set Z10 since March 7. I have more then 1800 contacts and are the most important data on my phone. Can't correct them manually. I have even wiped phone and started all over again. They again doubled. Please help

Re: Out of nowhere all my contacts are doubled..

I've got mine fixed now.

 

I first deleted my Gmail CardDav, then disabled ALL other sources. Then I deleted all contacts on my SIM card.

Once that was done I re-enable the other sources one-by-one, checking to make sure I had no duplicates. 

Finally I re added Gmail CardDav. I only had a few duplicates, one was my own contact card, the others were mostly spelling variation issues.

Re: Out of nowhere all my contacts are doubled..

This solution to remove all contacts from Gmail account and then to reinstall is available on the BlackBerry help site. I tried. Unfortunately, my contacts that were previously doubled have since become 3 and in some cases 4 times. I have also lost a few important contacts. Bad experience.
