    Hello there

    I have had a little problem for some time now. It is with my contacts are repeated in the list up to four times containing exactly the same details. I had some cased before when one had a phone number and what seemed a duplicate had an email address. I don't really know why that happened as I think I set it up to show only contacts with phone numbers but so be it. Now it is different. I find the same contact three and four times with exactly the same information. To make things more interesting is that if I try to delete one of them all of them are deleted and I will lose the contact altogether.

    Why does this happen? Is there a way to sort it out?

    Had the same issue ages ago

    Just use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=angel.twitch&hl=en

    and then go merge your duplicate contacts in google contacts on the web

    it is strange. That link in my computer takes to a page in which I can see there is an app to install, but I cannot find it in Googleplay in my mobile.

    Thanks for the advice but I have installed it and I'm not sure what use it has. it seems pretty useless to me. There are numbers in my list that repeat more times than twitch shows, so I don't think I can sort the problem out.

    just go to your phone book settings and choose only one source of contracts
