    You don't need to delete the LinkedIn app as far as I know, just untick "Sync Contacts" in accounts.

    That doesn't solve the core of the problem, obviously

    Same problem with my Samsung Galaxy S4. I had a problem with all my contacts due to multiple entries syncing it with Outlook 2013 via Kies. Then I saw the Linked In problem.

    I uninstalled the Linked In app (wasn't really using it anyway) and all the Linked In contacts went away.

    I'm still not seeing Facebook contacts, but that might be another trouble.

    The Facebook issue is more of a policy/design decision, as I understand it (but I could be off base here). They [Facebook] don't allow any outside source to sync with your Facebook contacts and I think it just applies to Google/Android--though again, I'm probably off a bit here. But I don't think it's a glitch, but instead a definitive decision.

    Having the same issue. 100's duplicate contact for each existing contact. Just uninstalled LinkedIn, lets see if it helps. Right now its saying I have no conyacts. Hopefully, it will sync back with my Google contacts soon.

    Update: yes after uninstalling LinkedIn, my contacts are back to normal, after almost 15 mins of re-syncing. Wonder, how a company like LinkedIn introduce such stupid bugs. LinkedIn QA team, time to roll up your sleeves.

    Same problem. Nexus 5. Uninstalled LinkedIn App. Re-installed and chose not to sync contacts and all seems good.

    Same problem as everybody else. Just thought that I would raise the question again. There must be someone reading posts like this with influence on bugs and patches This is a major bug.


    Deleted some 100 LinkedIn links in one persons entry - manually, are we havin' fun yet?

    Don't delete the contacts manually, instead just uncheck the contact sysnc option in Linkedin App. This cleared all duplicate entry for me in 30 mins.

    You don't have to delete the LinkedIn app to get rid of the duplicate contacts. Just go to Settings within the app and turn off the sync functions. I had about 50 copies of each contact and they disappeared within a few minutes of turning off this functionality.

    Have you heard back from LinkedIn regarding your open case?

    I'm having the same problem on an LG L90 Android 5.0.2.: multiple duplicates of the same contact imported from LinkedIn account & Viber account on my phone's contact list. The list keeps growing, from ~1700 real contacts to 7000 contacts and growing.
    It is not only a LinkedIn problem - it is also a Viber problem.
    I switched off sync in LinkedIn and uninstalled, then re-installed the LinkedIn App. Problem is resolved with LinkedIn, but without synching going forward.
    I switched off sync in Viber and unistalled, then re-installed the Viber App. Problem is resolved with Viber but without synching going forward.

    Looks like I have something a little bit different with my duplicated contacts. I also have a lot of my contacts duplicated, but the duplicated entry is a blank entry with just the name. Also those duplicated entries cannot be deleted. When I try to delete it, show an error message that "I can't delete contacts from read-only account..." Obviously the original contact is not a read-only contact.

    Already un-sync LinkedIn and Waze from contacts, reboot and nothing, duplicated contacts still there.

    I have an Nexus 5 running Marshmallow.

    I went to my contacts and opened up settings in the right hand corner and chose show only contact with phone numbers. That at least brought me from 1800 to 500 contacts. I don't know if this helps anyone else, but it makes it manageable for me.
