    When I tap the 'To' box or the person icon there are multiple entries for each contact. The second person in my contact list appears at least 100 times, others are in there 6, 8 10+ times.

    Orange Help sent me a text. I deleted it. Took battery out etc. And guess what? No help at all.

    In the People folder the entries are there in their singular form.

    Anyone any ideas for resolving this?

    BTW - the contact only receives one message!!

    I'm guessing you have Facebook contact sync on?

    If so do the following...

    Menu>settings>applications>manage applications>check how much memory your contacts storage is taking up

    There will always be multiple contacts in messages (obviously you have an issue though) as you can send messages to each phone number and each email. the app seperates them. It also seperates them for each source linked to.

    If dave has a phone number and email in google and a phone number and email in facebook, you will have 4 contacts in messages.

    Its poor I know, but thats just the way they do it for some reason.
