Re: Nokia Sync puts back ancient, deleted contacts...

Nokia Sync puts back ancient, deleted contacts and multiplies contacts after latest update.

Nokia Sync is hiding old, deleted contacts and is actually adding a contact I can't find in my Nokia Suite list or in Outlook 2010. My phone is an E6 running Belle Refresh.

 

I had actually dropped Sync because it constantly multiplied contacts by up to 4 times.

 

Because the latest update included the Calendar I started using Sync again.

 

But where does it find names I haven't had / don't have on the phone, and why does syncing result in double/treble/quadruple idetical contacts??

 

Ideas please?

If you update your contacts after a sync and then force a manual sync it should update the stored contents online to reflect the setup on your phone.

Hi Kosh

 

I'm a bit confused here. I have now updated my Contacts on my phone (E6), and deleted contacts I had, in fact, removed long ago but which seem to have been lurking online because they are not in the Contacts list in Nokia Suite or in Outlook.

 

I now have a list which may be accurate, I say may be, because either Sync, the Suite, my E6 or Outllook sometimes move numbers round between contacts. E.g. I just found one Danish contacts (+45) had a +55 number, which is Brazil.

 

Where do I force the manual sync (after backing up to my SD card, of course) ?

 

Best regards
