    Default double contacts.

    Yesterday I posted the following question I did get a reply, which I understand, but don't agree with.
    If I should only sync with 1 then I would have ALL my contacts double.
    This is not the case.
    So my question still remains the same.


    I got a problem with double contacts.
    I use IPhone, icloud and outlook.

    I had a problem with double contacts.
    To fix this I moved (not copied) all my contacts from the Icloud folder to my Hotmail contacts (in Microsoft outlook 2010)
    Checked online on icloud.com. All my contacts gone.
    Then 1 by 1 contact. updated and moved (not copy) to icloud. (also in Microsoft outlook)
    every now and then synced and checked on Icloud.com. yes my contacts were there.
    At the end my Hotmail was empty and my icloud was full. (no doubles)
    Copied all contacts to Hotmail account.
    all good.
    Now it is a day later and again I have got doubles in my icloud account.

    Can you help me with this problem?


    You shouldn't sync to both iCloud and Hotmail. Pick and use only one.

    Default Re: double contacts.

    You should only sync to one. Many problems like yours occur due to syncing to both. Good luck.
