    Is this a slightly different issue than you question about mobile,home and email all showing in messages?

    If so, can.you.explain exactly what you see please?

    You know in people you can select what contacts to see in the view? That doesn't affect messages or phone. Do you have duplicate contacts somewhere?

    Could you have the same contact information for some people as both phone/sim contacts and as google contacts? If they are there in both sets and you opt to show all types you will see them twice.

    I recently converted all of my phone contacts to google contacts in order to be able to sync them with my google account. If I select both phone and google contacts (in People press menu, then View) I get all of them twice.

    Might be this.

    Not sure exactly what you're getting at, do you mean you have facebook friends appearing as contacts and you don't want them there?

    If so, go back into People:Menu:View and check the top box 'Show only contacts with phone numbers'.

    Hope that helps.

    edited to add: And uncheck the Facebook for HTC Sense option too!
