    Hi
    I just purchased new android Panasonic eluga icon.
    Successfully copied all contacts as usual.
    But something weired happening.
    I have total 843 contacts. After some time when I check contacts
    I am obeserving that some contacts are repeating itself. I removed them. But no.of contacts are increasing up to 1100 or1200 automatically.

    Please suggest solution. Thanks

    This might be because contacts getting copied both in the Phone memory & Memory card simultaneously. And later getting downloaded in your Google account.

    Thats coz your contacts are synced with your google account, so that the deleted contacts are reappearing.

    Open contacts.google.com in browser, Login with the same gmail account that you used to setup the phone. You'll see all of your contacts listed there. Use Find duplicates option. Merge or remove based on your preference. Profit.

    I deleted all contacts in my gmail account.
    Then copied all contacts freshly from phone to gmail.

    But still they are doubling If I try to syncronise from phone.

    Are you sure that there are no duplicates in the contacts you freshly copied?

    I'll suggest you an another way. Install my phone explorer form here. Then connect your phone to the system and sync it with my phone explorer. See if any duplicates are available and delete them if exists.

    Reset the phone contacts app. Clear data and check sync settings.
