    Getting duplicate contacts on Android powered HTC Magic after importing contacts from SIM card

    When I bought Android powered HTC Magic few days back, I have imported all contacts from my old SIM card into it. Since then, I can view duplicate contacts on the phone. How can I remove them?

    Hi friend,
    This is very simple and easy way to remove these duplicate contacts.In this case first of all you will go to the menu in your phone.Then you will open the contacts.After that you will select Names and click on it.Then you will go to the option menu and select the mark option.Next you will mark those contacts which is duplicate.Then you will go to the option menu again and select delete marked option.Then the duplicate contacts will be deleted from your phone.This is the procedure to do this.

    The cause of your Problem :

    **It looks like as if you have imported your contacts of SIM card to your phone memory.

    **Since you are getting duplicate contacts it is evident that you are viewing both the contacts of your phone and SIM card at one time

    Solution ====>>>>

    **If you want to keep the SIM card in your Phone,you have to delete the contacts from SIM card.then you will view only the phone memory contacts

    **Else you can also view only the SIM Card contacts.

    for this you need to ...... open contacts ......click on 'all contacts' ......click on' SIM'

    Hi,
    In order to remove the duplicate contacts you can do two methods one is if you have both your SIM card and phone contacts on display you can select either one of them and such that your contacts will not be shown as duplicates. If that is not your issue then open "Settings" from your application drawer and then select the option as "Accounts & Sync" in that select your Google account and then sync all your contacts to your Google account then open google contacts in Browser where you can mark and delete the duplicates and then re-sync the contacts in phone.
    Hope this Helps.
