Duplicate contacts and email address

I love my wp7 so much but it seems like there is an issue with the people hub. There are some contacts in the people hub that suddenly has more than one duplicated.

*** Email address is removed for privacy ***
*** Email address is removed for privacy ***
*** Email address is removed for privacy ***

Every time i delete them it reappears after awhile. Is there a way to solve it??

I understand your frustration, I felt the same way.

I was able to stop the issue from happening by removing the contact, and re-adding them. I did this all through the web interface on a pc. It was much easier that way.

You need to did it via the contacts interface through a web browser. Just delete the contact that gets duplicated, and re-add them. Its not the best solution, but after doing that, I have not duplicate contacts again. It only seems to be an issue with old contacts, who were messenger contacts as well. I have not seen the issue with new contacts at all.


Hope it helps!
