    Checked for updates last night and woke up this morning with a notification that an OTA update is available for T-Mo. I went ahead and let the phone update this morning and it took about an hour. so i just went to send a text message just now and i type the person's name in that i want to send it to and notice there are duplicate entries in my phone book!!

    What gives?! Can someone help me out here as to getting back single contact entries? NOTE: NOT ALL CONTACTS WERE DUPLICATED.

    thanks.

    NOTE: I was currently operating on the .586 OS now i'm at the most current version .7something

    Do you have a Gmail account? This is how I get around duplicate contacts. For me its too much work to fix it on the BB.


    I have a Gmail account and have Gsync on my BB. After i did my OS upgrade last night, I noticed most of my contacts were duplicated, probably because of whats on my sims card and on Gmail.

    I did a Google sync, then went onto my PC and opened my Gmail accounts. Went into contacts and modified/erased all my contacts. When done, I hit Gsync on my phone again and VOILA!!! All good now. It something that I learned here on Crackberry when I first got my 9700 and all my contacts were jazzed up.

    Hope this helps.
