hi just had a look at my people app and noticed that i have multiple instances of the same contact synchronised from google. different contacts have different number of these instances

Did you sync contacts to your Google Acc before? It might be a problem on Googles side. I also had multiple entries for one contact, after syncing contacts from Google to my Jolla. I think G didn't merge the contacts on my Android phone but just linked them, so after importing on a non Android Phone they showed up as multiple entries...

Could also be related to this bug, where People app messes the labels of contact data synced from.various services (e.g. Google). https://together.jolla.com/question/3487/bug-wrong-labels-for-contacts-data-in-people-app/

i imported my contacts to google from a file, it was ok until now. i'm aware of issue with labels, however this is not it. i have 3-7 google contacts with the same details on my phone

I didn't say it's the same issue, but that it could be related.. Maybe the root cause is some problem with People app and how it handels contacts imported from different sources. If the labels are not correct then anything can happen when contacts are synced etc.

disable the sync google contacts option as it becoming unusable, 1 contact has been synchronised over 50 times to a device ( over 50 instances of 1 contact)
