    Unsure of why google hangouts lists most my phone contacts twice. in my phonebook i have my google contacts and my phone contacts, but only have the google contacts checked to be displayed. When i start imputing a number manually (for a non hangouts actual phone call), the predictive suggestions list people twice as well -. do i need to delete my "phone contacts" folder and if so, how do i do that? I am confident all my contacts are backed up to google hangouts/gmail contacts.

    you could manually delete each PHONE contact. easier and fast way would probably just be to do a hard reset back to factory state and then simply resync your Contacts from Gmail. this will be a slight PIA but it will be cleaner.

    good luck.

    okay - fixed it. select all of your contacts while displaying only phone contacts. select all. delete.

    you might lose some gmail contacts - but you can restore them by going to your contacts page, clicking more, and restore contacts. this will restore any you deleted with your phone contacts, but not your actual phone contacts. voila!

    You should have went here https://www.google.com/contacts/#contacts and then selected "Find and merger duplicates"
