    I wanted to see if my Skype name was in my contact card, so I clicked on the People icon, found my name in the list and clicked on it. I saw my home and work addresses were given twice, so I clicked Edit, and up popped six optional contacts to edit! Three were listed with my name; one of those had my Google contact photo. The other three were my individual email addresses. This has happened before. Why the multiple choices for a contact to edit when it's only one contact (me)? (I'm using an Eris with Android 2.1.)

    Yeah, this drives me mad. Has anyone found the answer elsewhere?

    It has to do with syncing contacts with GOOGLE. Even when saving contacts to SD card, wiping and reloading it will still sync up and create double entries.
