Try to find memory in use in contacts.

If the option is not there, then remove the SIM card, turn on the phone, and if you are sure about all contacts are present in SIM card then go on and delete all phone memory contacts.

Now insert the sim back in and you will find all single contacts list. :smileyhappy:

Hope this helps.

Ok.
Other way would be is to connect your phone via bluetooth to pc and open contacts using Nokia suite.
Now drag all the contacts from your phone to any folder, you'll see all double contacts with small rename like xyz(1).

Now you can delete the repeated contacts with "(1)" at the end of their name by simply searching (1) keyword in search box.

So now you have all contacts single in a folder.


Now you can delete all contacts in your phone confidently as you have copied all contacts to some pc folder.

Aftet you delete all contacts in your phone, copy back all contacts to your phone using nokia suite by simple drag anf drop.


Hope this will solve your problem. :smileyhappy:

Unfortunately Nokia suite do not support Nokia 206!
I did it through another method but yet the contacts are  duplicated.

Your solution is the same like to delete sim contacts! This is not a solution for me!

This phone needs a software update to add this option "Memory in Use".

Are you not able to delete phone contacts after removing the both sim cards?

Hey,

 

thanks for the report. I'll see if we can reproduce the issue and whether there would be any workaround available... :smileytongue: (except not to store the contacts both in SIM and phone memory)

Just to update that based on a quick test the behaviour would seem common for all dual-SIM phones... :smileytongue: We'll probably create an error report about this.

Re: Nokia 206 dual sim - contact list is double. Missing - Contacts Settings> Memory> in Use

I agree that the missing option to select which memory to use for you contact list is a problem that I did not expect to find in a 2012 Nokia phone. :confused:

 

I have the same issue with annoying duplicates when using a single SIM card with Asha 200 (I just updated to the latest software).

Browsing through such a crowded contact list is very inconvenient because of the font, which is way too big even when set to the smallest size.

 

Deleting duplicates manually from phone memory is not a solution:

-  contacts on SIM cards have basic details and are limited to a number of characters

-  what happens when you're on the move and insert a new SIM card that doesn't have the contacts you need?

Deleting contacts from SIM card is not a solution either for users who may have to switch phones.

 

So please have this fixed asap.

Agreed ..

This is of more importance when the phone doesn't have compatibility with the Nokia Suite. Else, one can sync these contacts and delete all from the SIM so that there is always a back-up available ..
