***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
My Contacts stored in the Cloud are all duplicated. How can I fix that?

Somehow, my Contacts on my iPhone got sent to the Cloud either twice or otherwise are all there in duplicate.  How can I fix that?  Can I delete them all and then send them out to the cloud from my iPhone?

Great news jbacinti! since the contacts are on Verizon Cloud, we are one step closer to the resolution. The most efficient way to eliminate the duplicate contacts is to first delete the duplicate on Verizon Cloud from the website on a computer. Once this is done then delete the duplicates from the phone and perform a sync. Just to confirm, have you ever used any 3rd party contact archival app other than Verizon Cloud and iCloud?

Backing up your contacts and keeping them stored in a safe place is always a good idea jbacinti. However, I know having duplicates can be annoying. Deleting all and backing them up would be the best option. Just to clarify, this is Verizon cloud? The best way to remove the duplicates would be to log into Verizon cloud  from a computer http://bit.ly/OwsVcd in order to clean up the list.

We definitely want to help you reduce your contacts down to just one set. Are you using the Verizon Cloud or Apple’s iCloud for your contacts?

I deleted all the contacts in the Verizon Cloud.  When I tried to delete the duplicates on the iPhone, I got them all marked with a check but then there was nothing else I could do.  There was no Delete option, nothing other than cancel.

jbacinti,

We do apporeciate all the work you have done so far. We are not giving up! Are the duplicates just showing in the Cloud app or are they duplicated in your contact list on your iPhone?

Jbacinti, let's continue working on getting these duplicates corrected. Just to clarify, you deleted all the contacts from the Verizon Cloud, have you gone to iCloud.com, log in with your Apple ID and confirm if there's any duplicates there?
