    I have contacts saved on my sim and I transferred them to my phone but now it shows two of every contact.

    I was able to fix this on the contacts page because there is an option on what to show but when I go from messaging -> compose -> contacts, it still shows two of each. Anyone know how to fix this?

    I had that problem on my previous phone. I got on my computer and logged into gmail. There are I deleted the extra copies. Then I saved it and synced my phone to gmail and it fixed the problem. It would probably work the same on this phone. HTH.

    Well, it is showing my contacts that are both on my sim card and on my phone, not the contacts that are in my email.

    Contacts --> Menu --> Display options --> Choose contacts to display (Check phone, uncheck SIM, etc)... I would also recommend choosing "only contacts with phones"


    Now, if anyone can tell me how to do the same thing with the built-in Messaging program, I will be most gracious (it doesn't appear to offer the same filtering options)....

    ::edit::

    I Should read more carefully. You are experiencing the exact same issue I am... Only this is additionally deleterious to me since it also includes all my e-mail contacts (a few hundred of them) which I have no interest having in my SMS/MMS program.
