Cool How do I fix Dupliate Contacts on my G2X?

This just happened and I don't know how. all my contacts, all of them, in my G2X are duplicated.

A web search pulls up the only suggestion of "delete the duplicate contact". Duh. I've got 100+ contacts and I can't set aside one day to do that.

Oh, I've had the phone since October and the first thing I did was turn OFF sync with Google.

The only difference between the duplicates is that while I don't have birthdays in my contact list, now all contacts have a duplicate with a birthday of 00000000.

Any suggestions?

Cool Dups

I spent an hour going through all my contacts and deleting. I'd still like to know how everything got duplicated.

Wow, you just wasted a ton of your time. Let's use a little deductive reasoning: gee my phone contacts are linked to my Gmail contacts, maybe if I go to my Gmail I can do something about all these duplicates. Oh, look a there, it has an option to detect duplicate contacts, and oh, it works perfectly.

Now, sarcasm aside, that's pretty much how it went when I had all my contacts get duplicated.

I like deductive reasoning. Hey, let's read my first post in this thread:

Gee, I wrote that my phone contacts aren't linked with Google. Oh, look, if I go to my GMail I'll see my contact list is empty. Oh, look a here, it means that my GMail account has nothing to do with this.

I like this deductive reasoning. Let's try another one! I deduce that you only read the last post in a thread.
