    Will there be any resolution of this issue in the upcoming release? Some have down loaded an unofficial version, has anyone here done so and can provide an update on a possible fix?

    I think the thread had to me renamed to describe better the problem. An issue with duplicate contacts with GMAIL.

    So please OP just change the thread so that it's more informative and people can come and help you.

    It isn't a gmail contact dupilcation issue anymore - I deleted all the contacts from gmail and the gmail contact account link as well.

    It is a SIM vs. Local/BBM contact duplication issue

    Anyway, I've deleted all my SIM contacts, which caused the local contacts to delete as well. So all I have left is BBM contacts.

    Next step is to try and import my contacts from Outlook 2010. I think I'll use the BB Link option to import contacts. Hopefully it works.

    People who use the word "Hence" in normal conversations shouldn't make fun of others.

    The problem with people getting mad at the forums is because instead of asking for help in a respectful manner they start bashing the device and use "Z10 Sucks" as the subject line, and then they get the same backlash and don't like it, sucks for you, don't start out a thread by bashing the device when you're seeking for help, these people will eat you up and spit you back out for it.

    Gmail sucks. Gmail contacts fail with every non-Google phone.

    The sooner you ditch Gmail for Outlook.com or another provider, the better.

    The whole point of Google services is to lock you into Google ecosystems like Android. Google makes it break on other platforms.

    Incidentally, Outlook.com works great with multiple ecosystems, so when your contacts are there, you just sync your new device and VOILA -- your contacts are there. No need to futz around with SIMs or other nonsense.

    Your problem isn't the Z10 -- its your Google addiction. Break it and life becomes much easier.

    Well, yeah, the Nexus series devices in general are "frickin' trash" -- built to a price rather than to a specification.

    That said, I'm SO FRIGGIN' TIRED of Google addicts complaining about how Google's hackneyed services don't work well on devices running BB10, Windows Phone or iOS. OF COURSE THEY DON'T WORK WELL -- the whole point of these services is to build lock-in on Google's platforms.

    If someone doesn't like how Google services works on his phone, he has two choices:

    1) Switch service providers to something better -- like Outlook.com, which works GREAT on iOS, Windows Phone, BB10 and Symbian;

    2) Stick with his Google addiction, buy an Android device, and go to the Android forums and kvetch about all the Android malware, lag, crashes, etc. that he has to endure to get reasonably decent Google services performance.

    It's WELL-KNOWN throughout the industry that Google doesn't give a fig about user experience for Google services on non-Google platforms. So to those folks who are complaining, nonstop, STOP whining about it and blaming the device OEM for Google's inability to provide a decent experience, mmmmkay?

    Either switch to another services provider, or stick with Google and get an Android.

    Lol I agree bro, they are forcing you stick to their platforms, though the nexus 7 is a good tablet, but it's specifications are underwhelming compared to even the PlayBook. I use Outlook and it works great with my z10, forget Google and their data mining.

    See...there's your problem right off the bat....you're using Gmail. I use Gmail for an email address that I can give to people I don't want to talk to. Gmail is the Fisher Price version of real @communications solutions.
    The Z10 doesn't suck...you suck! .....but don't get me wrong.

    There's a lot to hate about Bb10 actually:

    1. Contacts app not in-sync with phone app

    2. Crappy phone app

    3. Duplicate contacts (although was abke to fix this already, but still, this didnt happen on my iOS, so you definitely bec of Bb10)

    4. Bb10 flooded my yahoo sent mail

    5. Terrible batt life, even on. 85 OS

    6. Lacking features from legacy BB.

    7. Cant access my appword for a couple of days already. BB's one source of income, and yet still a mess up, BB need to beef up their quality control on their services if they want to make a serious come back.


    These are my 'complains', and some others too. But all in all, I love my Z10!

    I just came in to post that with a title like yours OP, I don't bother anymore to read your or others concerns. If your intelligence level leads you to proclaim a title like that. There's no helping you IMO.
