    my new employer gave me an evo 4g. i synced it with my google account. had a very organized list of contacts, with groups... it created dups even 3 or 4 copies of each contact...

    i immediately went to Phone settings > applications > manage applications and removed data...

    it appears my "People" contacts list and groups are no longer duped...

    However... on the home screen, when i click on "phone" above the dialpad, there is a list of my contacts... it's duplicated, but i think it's somehow cached... how do i clear this in application data so it reads from my actual synced people list (which is still no longer duped; only unique entries)?

    It's weird why it populates duplicates... John Smith will appear twice.. example
    John Smith
    916-666-6666
    John Smith
    9166666666

    I'm not sure why some are dashed and some aren't.. referred back to my google contacts.. they all have dashes... is evo creating the duplicate with non-dash? ugh... so confusing.

    Mine did this once and for the life of me I can't remember how I fixed it or get it to do it again

    It's annoying... for now i just click on people and not phone to make calls... when you have the name repeated 2-4 times per person, it takes forever to scroll on the phone menu
