    My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone has about 5+ dulicates for every contact.

    I am absolutely SICK of this. I just want to delete all the contacts on my phone in all my accounts. Linking doesnt work.

    I seem to have up to one entry for each of:
    - Exchange
    - gmail
    - whatsapp
    - viber
    - DejaOffice
    - Twitter
    - Skype
    - Meetup
    - Nine
    - Outlook
    - Linked in
    - Google

    I tried various things to only display contacts from my master list (Outlook/Exchange) but that failed. It either hid all my contacts so that I could only find them if I searched, or showed all the duplicates.


    Out of desperation I even tried downloading this app
    "Delete All Contacts"
    ...which says be very careful as it will delete all contacts from your device.

    It ran for about 2 minutes. It seemed to find about 6000 contacts....

    But the *$~*ing contacts are still there !!

    How do I get rid of them ALL so that I can start again?

    With thanks

    P.S. I am on Android 5.0
    My PC runs Outlook 2016 (on Win8.1) with hosted Exchange and has my master copy of all my contacts. I have exported them to a .PST file and can re-import as required.
