    Default Phone is Duplicating contacts

    Help, I don't know what to do. For some time now my phone keeps duplicating contacts 2,3,and 4 times. And then it joins them so when I look up a phone # it brings up many more results. Does anyone know how to stop this, and is there a way to delete all the extra contacts at one time?
    Thanks

    Do you have your Facebook friends to sync with your phone? That could be the reason why.

    If you have additional entries it could also be from g+, gmail, aol, hotmail. You can join those contacts into one entry.
    Click on one entry, press bottom left side of your sign choose Join Contact, your list of contacts will show up choose which one you want to join with. Simple

    You could try Contact Analyzer 2: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ntactanalyzer2 - it hasn't been updated in a long time, but it worked well for me back in my HTC Thunderbolt days.
    Edit: There's Contact Remover Plus: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...olyhog.dcfdpro which seems to have more current reviews, but it's a paid app.
    You didn't give us much to go on for how all of these duplicates showed up. It could be something as simple as using Verizon Backup Assistant + and having it restore your contacts while at the same time having your contacts already synced with Google. Without more information on when the problem started, or what social apps you might use, it's a shot in the dark.
