    Either download an app to merge them, a recent thread recommended Contacts X or you can do it manually (not a joyful experience).

    To avoid it, make sure you save it either on the phone or Gmail (just one place).

    I am not sure how the duplicates get there but the best way to get rid of them seems to be to delete the email account and then re-create it;

    this assumes that you are using some protocol like "activesync" (outlook.com, office365, etc). The contacts will reset and download again.

    Now - if the contacts are duplicated on your Server you are still stuck- and you need to get rid of them on the server, first.

    Another thing that looks like it is doing duplicates but not really is easily shown in the Contacts Application: Pick one account (say your Gmail account) and see if the contact shows there more than once. A lot of time Users have complained about "multiple contacts" but it is really just that the same person will have a FaceBook entry, GMail Entry, LinkedIn Entry, Twitter entry and so on.

    If it is only a couple of contacts which are duplicated try "link contacts" to combine them. If there are separate entries for each app (see above) you can also use "link contacts" to tie them all together, too.
