Contacts multiplying like bunnies!!!

After synching to an iPAQ hx2000 pocket pc the contact list of 1,850 has ballooned into over 5,000, on the handheld, by duplicating contacts.  Some as many as 3 times.  Despite having the pc overwrite the handheld, several contacts have been duplicated on the pc.


Can this be stopped?




Thanks for the help!

Try this ACT! Knowledge Base article -


It happens when ActiveSync decides it doesn't recognise the device. It's one reason I always prefer Handheld Contact to sync with Windows Mobile smart phones - you can download a 14-day trial from the link and see if it suits you.
