    Have a new MAXX. Veriizon transferred all my contacts from my old X2. All transferred but many have multiple duplicates, up to 85. How can I get rid of all the duplicates?

    If they are synced with your G-Mail / Google account, the easiest way I know of is to log into your G mail account on a PC. Open Contacts and then under the More button select Find & Merge Duplicates. If they are not synced to your G Mail account, I'm not sure.

    Awesome...glad to hear it. For future FYI: it was probably Verizon transferring your contacts that caused the duplicates. If your contacts are synced to your G Mail, anytime you activate a new phone they are instantly synced to that phone.
