Default Outlook Contacts Duplication

Please Login to Remove!

I have a user with a 8800 that syncs with Outlook. It is making multiple copies of some contacts on the handheld but not in Outlook.

Any suggestions as to what may be wrong here?

You can delete your entire BB Address Book and then re-sync Outlook to the BB. At that point, you shouldn't continue getting duplicates.

Backup the BB, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Then select Address Book and then advanced, and then delete (or clear).

I backed up the BB, cleared the Address Book, and did a re-sync.

Same thing. I double checked to make sure there wasn't duplicate entries again in Outlook and there isn't. Any more suggestions??

Should I have pulled the battery between the address book clear and the re-sync??

lol, yea, it would be nice to know.

I thought later, someone could have duplicates by having a filter applied to one entire set of addresses, perhaps.

Default Me too...figured it out

Hello -

I had the same issue, and it was confounding because not all of the contacts were duplicated - only some of them. And, they had subtle differences, such as the numbers using parentheses on one version and dashes on the other.

Well...a few years ago, I had the bright idea of creating a separate Outlook Contact list for company contacts (our employees, suppliers and distributors).

Forgot I'd done it...

Anyway, the Blackberry copied both Outlook Contact profiles over - and that was the reason for the duplication.

Long story short, check your Outlook Contact Profiles to make sure you only have one version.

Hope this helps,

-Geo
