It bothers me that I have duplicates and triplicates or more of the same contacted linked together. For some reason, verizon will take a contact and because it doesn't have the () around the area code, it makes a duplicate of the contact without the ()'s. Or it will randomly make a lot of multiples of a contact. I have deleted from both my phone (tokk a long time checking every contact and unchecking all the links) and from backup assistant twice, and still does this. It messes up with other apps and changes the contact pictures I have chosen and when you look at a contact, it will show the home # phone 3 times. I tried searching the threads for contacts, but there was nothing about this problem. I'd appreciate the help if anyone can.
