Duplicate Gmail Contacts on BlackBerry 10? They’re Aware of It


by Lucas Atkins

Have a Gmail account added on BlackBerry 10 and getting duplicate contacts? You’re not alone. Google allows you to save your contacts to their service and use it as a backup.

However, by syncing the service in BlackBerry 10 it is causing duplicate contacts. In knowledge base article KB34047 BlackBerry has stated they’re aware of the issue and development team is working to correct it. Though, no time frame is given.

For the short-term, BlackBerry gives the following workaround:

Remove Gmail Contacts

Swipe down from the top bezel
Select Settings
Select Accounts
Select Gmail Contacts
Select Delete
Re-add Gmail Contacts

Select Add Account at bottom of Accounts screen
Select Email, Calendar and Contacts
Enter Gmail email address
Enter password
Set Sync Email to Off
Set sync Calendar to off
Ensure Sync Contacts is On
Select Done
