    Showing to many contacts

    Hi my contacts were on Google and i transferred them to my sim and i also installed Facebook app now i seem to have two or three of each contact and in my messages when i navigate to contacts i have a load of people from my Facebook account who i don't even have numbers for, i have gone to the option contacts to display and i have managed to sort it for the phone contacts but it still shows tons of contacts if i go to messaging and contacts.

    Did you sync your facebook when you started the app? I've done that in the past and had way too many contacts, I just deleted them one at a time.

    instead of deleting individual contacts, go to the phone, click contacts, then the logs tab will change to groups. go to groups, select a group (prob unassigned for you at the top of the list), then hit the menu soft key to be able to put check marks next to names you want to delete. then click delete in the upper right hand corner when you're done. if you dont sync during your mass deletion you may have issues syncing to google when you're all done.

    try going to the contacts tab, click the menu soft key, select contacts to display, select all first before you go into groups to delete.

    edit: if this doesnt work, your duplicate contacts may be joined with one another. when i imported my google contacts and my phone contacts to my phone it automatically linked duplicates. to unjoin them go to the contact tab, click on a contact, hit the menu softkey, click seperate contacts, then click the red -.
