    Hi I after 2 months since I bought my phone I looked into my contact list and I saw for each contact there are 5 extra contact without number. And my total contacts was around 225 and now it's 756.
    This is crazy...
    Any suggestion? How can I fix this?
    FYI :all of other accounts on my device are disabled and i'm using the device only.

    What about Android apps? The ones that don't show up on the Accounts settings? Do you have Skype installed?

    Yes and viber and line too. Is it because of them?

    Try opening up Skype, go to the settings, and turn off Contact Syncing. That's a really big culprit to contact duplications. Turning off the settings won't delete the duplicates, but it will stop them from cloning even more.

    Viber is clean, but I'm really not sure about Line. I've never used that.

    In the contact App, swipe down, options, turn off "showing" the contacts from other sources:

    As far as I'm aware, yes.

    I've heard of others solving this problem by purchasing an application over BlackBerry World called Contact X for $1.99.

    The fact is: In BB10, the contacts are not "physically" saved, but only "shown" from any source you've contacts in... And the phone itselfs, keeps synching with your main calendar/contact app... say google.
    Some advised to delete the contacts from phone and only keep the cloud... I find it too risky!!

    Viber does have contact syncing, but I don't think that it duplicates contacts on the app.
