Nope, I ported my Outlook contacts to Gmail.Did you already have a contacts list on Google? That would be why you have duplicates. There is the offer to merge your Facebook and Google contacts if you have your Facebook contacts synced to your device (also applies to other services where you might have a contact list that can sync to your device).
I made the switch to Simpler app (it's called Simpler), looks much better + IT SYNCS FB IMAGES + better contacts manegament (including merging dubs)Hej,
I have the similar problem. Albeit I did not import my contacts into gmail, but rather let the outlook app sync my contacts into my phone book. The interesting thing is, if I go to "Contacts" I don't see double accounts only when I look at the contacts tab under "Phone".
If I disable the WhatsApp sync in the "Contacts"-App, no new entries will be produced until I refresh my contacts list in WhatsApp. Then WhatsApp will turn it's sync on again and clutter the "Phone"-App.
It is a peculiar problem. For now my plan is to delete the dublicates in my "Phone"-App and turn off all sync from WhatsApp. Until I get a new WhatsApp contact that should work, I hope until then I find a better solution.
Did you find any other solution for the problem?
Never had this issue on Windows, never list any content!Yup! It’s a common issue with Android phones. Your contacts can quickly add up when you perform a master reset or import contacts from another source. Reason being, Android build a lot of backups to ensure you won’t lose your precious data should something undesired happen to your device. And one should be grateful because it’s quite easy to clean up your duplicate contacts rather losing them owing to an unintended action.
