    For the longest time now I have had some of my contacts doubling themselves and it has been driving me crazzzyyyy!

    Today when going through them I noticed that it was only contacts with numbers that had "-" in them.

    For ex. Jenny 625-925-1095

    I would get a double with 6259251095

    So after removing all the dashes my contacts are finally behaving

    If that is the case then BlackBerry should pay you. Cause it is very easy to fix and funny that no one else found this simple bug.
    I will check my phone too if what you are saying is true.

    You can leave a space instead for clarity. I do it all the time and have had zero issues.

    Why would anybody put dashes in a phone No?

    Because whatsapp is dumb and can't detect numbers without dashes.

    Its only been a few days since I tried this and so far no problems. Dont get me wrong I dont dilute myself in believing that this will solve everyone problem, because the problems with this app stem from multiple bugs, I just happened to figure out what was causing the bug in my particular case. Hopefully this solves the problem for some people and mainly I wanted to get this out to the community to get a peer review

    when I go into my contacts to look for a number Its easier to read the numbers when their separated.
    ex. 88-96-03-54-23 or 8896035423

    Also silly me I try to memorize phone #s still, in the case of being separated from my phone I still know key #s.

    No man, it would not solve the problem. Contacts app has so many bugs that is by far the worst contacts app ever! They must solve it quickly.
    The problem is very easy to solve but they need to.make scripts for analyzing, matching and unifying the contacts: recognition by name, after that by number and other details and keep just the variant that is complete, has all the details. What I don't understand IS WHY BlackBerry DONT READ OUR COMPLAINS AND RELEASE QUICKLY AN UPDATE FOR THIS ISSUE WELL KNOWN?

    That's like asking why would anyone want digit grouping in the calculator. What's easier to read: 187654321 or 187,654,321? Yes, I'm still asking why there is no digit grouping in the calculator. Who removed it, and why????
