I havn't used exchange to sync anything on my phone, but have you tried removing your exchange account? I only ask because I know if you sync facebook with your phone, and you remove facebook it will remove all of the contacts and such.

I made the same mistake.

Open the "People" app, press the menu button, and select "View" which is the thing that looks like an eye.

Sorry, I figured out that mod only affects what you are seeing in the People app.

When I went to compose an MMS, all contacts showed up

So the question remains, how can we easily remove either the gmail duplicates, or the exchange duplicates?

Google has a great tool to remove duplicates if you go to Google contacts

I used the gmail duplicate removal tool when I merged my exchange contacts with gmail via a .csv file dump, worked pretty well.

They don't even show up on my gmail.com contacts. In the phone they are organized separately - within the People (contacts) application, there is a category for gmail and another one for exchange. I think that the gmail ones only get synced to gmail.com. But when you compose an SMS, both gmail and exchange contacts are listed.

I believe the way that I would up with an exchange contacts list is when I created my exchange account with my same gmail address, and while playing around with settings tried doing a sync. It then took all of my gmail contacts and placed them into the exchange contacts list.

I think I could probably delete the exchange account and then recreate, but thought there may be a faster solution on here. In retrospect however, it would have been faster to try my above theory

Default Sync People App with Google Contacts

I have a question along these lines as well. I had duplicated and didn't know how to get rid of them til I read this thread about google.com/contacts. I went in and deleted a ton of duplicates and some people I never even talk to. Now, how do I get my People App to recognize what I did in google.com/contacts? I don't want to delete everything in the People App b/c then I have to go back in and link everyone's Facebook. Is there a way to just sync contacts with people?

If they are exchange contacts just go to your people app and do menu export contacts exchange contacts to fact on SD.

Then import them to Google.

I would want to have all my contacts in Google anyway andthewhole procedure taes 5 mins.

Font forget to export all your Google contacts to a backup file right before just in case
