    Hi

    Had the g2 touch / hero for a few days now and love it but today I have a problem with contacts being duplicated in the people app.

    All of my contacts are stored in gmail and there are no dupes but today all of my contacts with a facebook profile are showing twice.

    Also, and I don't know if this is related, the people app no longer shows any albums for facebook contacts although they are there if I access them through the albums app.

    Any idea what I can do to clear this up?

    Cheers

    Pete

    Nobody else had this?

    In the end I had to export my gmail contacts (to back them up), delete all contacts and sync the phone, import my contacts back to gmail and sync the phone again.

    Cleared the dupes - well for a couple of days at least until they all came back.

    There are no dupes in the gmail contacts so it definately seems like a problem with the people app somewhere.

    This just happened to me this morning for the first time. Nice, a new problem to fix! I have an Android Eris using the people App.

    This just happened to me for the first time this morning. Has anyone figured out how to fix it without backing up and deleting?

    Hi,

    I got this problem on my HTC hero too. It seemed to go away after logging out of my facebook account, syncing my gmail contacts, then logging back in to facebook again.

    After a while the facebook links reappeared with no duplicates... now I'm just hoping it stays that way!

    I have the same problem with my Hero duplicating several facebook contacts - so I'd love an answer! I also had a problem with it duplicating my gmail contacts - which i realized was bc I had them actually duplicated in gmail. I fixed the problem in gmail by merging the dupes, but how to do I get my phone to update itself and erase the gmail dupes?
