    Many of these duplicate after being linked with other contacts and will not erase until unlinked.

    Computers are fast but not yet even in the stupid class. 1 800 555-1212 and 800 555-1212 are different numbers. (It's like merging addresses with the same house number on 5th Ave., Fifth Ave., 5th Avenue and Fifth Avenue - those are 4 different addresses to a computer.)

    The best computer for "about equal" is still the human brain.

    If the numbers you enter in Outlook are going to be used by a human being or by a cellphone, always leave out the 1. A cellphone registered in and used in North America assumes the +1, so you're just wasting space putting it in. (The 1 means "North America" to the phone system.) If Outlook is going to be dialing a lanline phone, you could solve the problem by putting the 1 in all phone numbers. Or, if you're just syncing once, change them in the phone manually.

    I don't enter or edit in outlook. I have used outlook as a backup and convenient storage for emails. . My contacts with jamaican numbers are all input without area code. Something has duplicated those numbers with a 268 area code.is there a setting that I can change to stop this?
