I have a dual SIM phone and my address books keeps getting populated by these empty bogus one-letter contacts that are shown as being read from the second SIM, see picture:[bogus_contacts] If I delete them, after some time, they appear again. I had some saved contacts (like 112 aka European 911) from my primary SIM that also appeared in this fashion but after I deleted them from the first SIM, they stopped appearing. However, I cannot deleted those from the second SIM card, because they are not there! I have this confirmed by another user of hte same phone (Gemini PDA) and also by someone who used to own a dual SIM Sony Experia, so it seems like a bug in Android. Any idea what to do about it?

  • Easiest way might be going to the app's settings and tell it not to show SIM contacts at all. – Izzy Aug 21 '18 at 11:41
  • That seems to work, it was well hidden in the app settings, and it also works for DW contacts that I actually use! – sup Aug 21 '18 at 16:37
  • Cool! \o/ Could you please answer your own question then with a short step-by-step guide of what you did? Would help others in a similar situation, especially with that setting so well buried. Thanks in advance! – Izzy Aug 21 '18 at 16:47
