    Hi all,
    I recently upgraded to 2.1 and have some issues with my contact list. I have all my contacts still, but whether it be the facebook app or the 2.1 upgrade, I now have multiple copies of each contact. Within each contact it has the persons number as well as their "main" number which is the same thing just duplicate, and when I go to add a contact for a text or for calling someone, some contacts show up with all their numbers (home, business, etc) 4 or 5 times. Anyone else have this problem?

    I had this problem and managed to fix it in the people section of my contacts my deleting my contacts from my phone and resynching with google and facebook. However I still have the issue in messages and email where all contacts including facebook friends show up multiple times and have no idea how to fix it. I am a newbee so any help would be appreciated.

    First, if these are Google contacts, I'd suggest going into gmail on a desktop/laptop browser, click the "contacts" link, and then click the button to the right "find duplicates" That should help with Google contacts.

    I think that as you open up Google contacts that you know should link with Facebook contacts, there is a "link" control in the upper right, next to the contact name, where you can control which phone/Google contact links with your Facebook contacts.
