    Unhappy Duplicate Contacts

    Sometimes when backup assistant runs, it duplicates my contacts. Anyone else having this issue?

    Thanks!

    Hello, Sounds like your gmail might be syncing your contacts along with backup assistant. Might want to check Menu>settings>accounts&sync>Click your gmail account>uncheck sync contacts. Hope this can help out

    Thanks! Gmail isn't checked. I only sync with backup assistant. It's very strange.

    Weird. I suggest just transfering everything via a computer to your google account. I just logged into gmail when I first got my droid and manually typed in my 250 or so contacts. Now they're in the cloud and easily accessible.

    Backup assistant is really somethin that VZW thinks is neccesary so you wont loose your contacts but with Android and its ability to backup everything through Google the backup app really isnt needed. However any other phones that arent Google based like Android is would for sure need the app (gotta love Android tho right?). I am Rooted running Liberty Rom and i havent had Backup assistant in almost a lil over 6 months. Your Gmail account is able to backup all contacts. Aslo when you create a new contact then it should give you an option to back it up through Gmail or it will do it Automatically. Cant imagine why backup assitant is duplicating your contacts tho. Hope this problem will get resolved tho.

    Do you think it's better to sync via gmail than backup assistant?

    IMO syncing through Gmail is def better because Google is simple and you can access everything through your computer along with through your phone.

    Yes. If you plan on being on a smartphone from here on out it is better because even blackberrys and iphones have the ability to sync everything via google (mail, calender, contacts etc)
