    every time i sync (since the 1st sync)... the itouch creates a duplicate of EVERY contact that has the company checkmark in my address book... and that duplicate is now filed by name - and the checkmark is removed.. also it adds a bunch of square symbols (ascii for space i think)... if i go an remove them - it repeats it again as soon as i sync.... its like it has no idea how to use the company checkmark... both are apple products - do they not play nice together?
    mac os x10.5.7
    itouch 2.2.1 (updated today)
    address book from apple

    tried restore and reimport.. same issue happens.

    thanks for your help :)

    Same type of problem

    did you ever get this resolved?

    I've got 5 entries for each of my contacts.

    nope - the other day i had 5 of some... i finally got peeved and unmarked all of my contact for the company flag... then it took me HOURS to merge the contacts... which made for a lot of duplicated info within the contacts... ridiculous... apple is completely ignoring this issue. itouch v 3.1 did not fix it.
