    So, i got my phone sync'd to my facebook, gmail, and yahoo accounts.. When it sync'd it pulled in YEARS of contacts.. like, WAAAYYY too many.. most of which are duplicates..

    Is there anyway to do this easily, as in NOT on my phone? like some sort of android contact manager? its just a huge pain in the ass to do it on the phone.. lol.. theres like, hundreds of contacts.. haha..

    any suggestions?

    yea its called GMail.

    Best way is to import using CSV files. Sounds like either way you will need some manual editing.

    arrrgggg.. lol.. i know what gmail is..

    but it sync'd EVERY contact from facebook, yahoo, and gmail, and merged them together with my regular contacts.. sigh.. i guess i have work to do..

    is there any VNC server or something that I can remote access my phone from a computer?

    actually, if you go into your contacts setting there is an option for what accounts you would like to sync. turn off facebook and yahoo and voila, you are saved. as for gmail, edit those contacts manually on your gmail page.
