    Hi, all my contacts are google contacts with several linked to Facebook accounts. When I access my contacts through the People widget, all's good, I only see the google contacts (I've deselected Facebookers in the view menu). However when I access the Messages widget all my contacts are doubled up for some reason. I realise this list is also showing facebook contacts as well as google contacts but even the non-facebook contacts are doubled up.

    Any ideas why?

    Thanks

    Dave

    I keep getting this, I think it happened after syncing google contacts. Looking at the people list it now has facebook, google and phone contacts all linked whereas before it was just facebook and google contacts linked. So it was showing 2 numbers for each contact. I don't know the correct solution for this I just turned off google sync and un-linked the contacts and deleted the unwanted doubles (took ages).
