    Ahhhh! I just enabled Backup Assistant and it also doubled all my contacts! I have Google contacts view selected but in the phone dialer I see all contacts, doubled.

    How can I fix this? I regret signing into BUA.

    Many people have problems syncing their contacts with either backup assistant or Google. I don't bother syncing, I just export to the SDcard when I make changes.

    To disable backup assistant read post #20 in the following thread.

    If you have a good copy of your contacts, you can download contact remover, remove almost all contacts (since it won't get rid of the contacts that GB comes with) and put the good copy back.
