So this AM i go to my contacts and suddenly all of them are doubled, and most with 2 seperate pictures.
My facebook/Twitter/BBM Contacts/BBM Video/SIm Card Contacts are all switched off, only gmail is on.
I took out the battery, I restarted the phone 5 times, yet they are all still doubled...
Why is this?
It's driving me insane. Almost as much as the facebook integration into my bluetooth. Blackberry needs to address these contact issues. Both the Android and IPhone have a 'do not download contacts'... HELP!!!

The switches just magically change, go back in and reset them.
That is a feature in HUB also, particulaarly I can't keep FB and Text to stay put. It has gotten better over time though. I'm on day five and it didn't happen yet today.

Go to contacts and swipe down for settings. You can select off for facebook or whatever.
The other thing you can do, and what I have done, select a contact that has a duplicate, and down at the bottom you see a "Links" button, press it. Then press the "Add Link" button at the bottom. This takes you back to the contact list where you can select the duplicate entry(s). Linking the duplicates to the original combines all contact details from all sources into one. And the dupes will disappear.

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, will all add contact phone numbers and names to the ones you already transferred in from your own phone.
I went through and linked everything, took some time. I then went through regularly used contacts and edited the phone numbers to what they were, home, business, mobile, etc.
You can turn Facebook and Twitter and LinkedIn off

I have tried your suggestion for a few contacts, and its "appears" to work for now. But surely this cannot be the solution to this problem, to do this to every contact is time consuming and defintely not a positive for this disappoinment of a phone (so far)

Exactly, "this disappointment of a phone."
Unfortunately, the doubling contact and in my case some were trippled - I linked them and then found out I had to go and edit each and every one because the phone numbers were all listed as "other." Shoot me.

Yep. Mine are all messed up. I look in my contact book and I have a 4 contacts for the same guy. One for Facebook, one for Linkedin, one for the company and a SIM contact. And they're all "linked" whatever that means, Each has a different photo but no photo shows in his BBM contact.
