    THE PROBLEM:
    I was going through my phonebook and for a few contacts, i would have A LOT of duplicates. By a lot I mean nearly 100 if not more of 1 person, but the contact would be something about facebook related. this was for about 15-20 people that had 100+ entries.

    HOW I FIXED THIS:
    people > Menu > View

    Check or uncheck any of the want or dont want. after you're done, click done and check you're phonebook again to see if it worked

    hope this helped!

    I had the same issue except I had like a contact that had 4 links that wasn't facebook related.

    Also worth pointing out that if you go to Accounts and Synce you will have two Facebook entries... One is the newer Facebook App and one is Facebook for Sense. If you click into the Facebook (not for Sense) setting and uncheck contacts it will save you from duplicates as well.

    Also, if your Google contacts are infected with dupes, there's an option on the web to eradicate them.
