    Hi this is my first post. I have had search but have been unable to find anything that helps.

    I have checked my contact and have no duplicates, although I did find some with linked contacts which I have since deleted. However every time I open up the SMS app and try and search for a contact it display each contact about 5 or 6 times.

    I have checked the people app and I am certian that there no duplicates. I don't use facebook so no contacts there and I dont sync gmail contacts. can anybody help me to try and remove these duplicate entries

    not sure, but have you changed the view in people to only include those with phone numbers?

    Looks like i have solved the issue. For some reason each contact had the same number repeated several times in the edit contact area , deleted the extra numbers within here and problem is solved. sorry about creating a needless thread.
