    Question Resolving Duplicates - Single Contacts with multiple entries

    I am new to Android, my last Motorola product was a RAZR. I've been using an iPhone for years and now I have a Atrix 4G. The phone and the Android OS is fascinating, and I am learning a lot every day. I primarily use Macs at home, and they are not always so user friendly when it comes to syncing contacts and calendars with iCal and Address Book. I started syncing my Address Book with GMail, and my Calendars with Google Calendars. The Calendars were easy to set up, but I've had a heck of a time with my contacts. I finally got very close to resolving hundreds of duplicate contacts in my Address Book, but when I see my contacts in Atrix, I have single entries and a lot data duplicated between Motoblur and Gmail. How can I set this up to have ONE contact with ONE set of data per Contact? I might add I use "The Missing Sync for Android" for my Mac, and it syncs SOME of my data, and I don't use it to sync Contacts nor Calendar data. I think my problem lies with MOTOBLUR account and GMail account data syncing and merging this data. Any suggestions?

    Hi and welcome.

    The only thing I know to do would take quite a few steps. You would first need to edit each contact, tap the Menu button while editing and Separate into Google and Motorola contacts.

    Then you have two options: you can either delete the Motorola contact for each duplicate, or you can tap the Menu button while in Contacts, choose Display options, scroll down to Motorola services, open it and uncheck the Other contacts box to hide all of the Motorola versions.

    May be your phone has automatically copied the contacts in Google account & gets doubled. If so, you can do as the following:

    Go to Contacts > Menu > Contacts to Display
    Here select the accounts, the contacts of which you want to be displayed.

    Another way would be to create an Excel sheet of the numbers by deleting your duplicated contacts on Atrix 4G and then upload it with a name into Gmail. Enable only this list contacts to be displayed in the Contacts application.
