    This is an odd one...
    I noticed that a number of contacts were duplicates when I restored (has also happened in other leaks). Then I noticed the ones that included "and" in the name (eg. John and Jane Smith) were particularly stricken and had multiple duplicates; in some instances up to 15. Very odd.
    Was able to delete and thus far they haven't returned .

    Usually, when I see duplicates, they are Skype's fault.

    Any chance the duplicates are local versions of you synced entries?

    [OS 10.2.0.1803, SW 10.2.0.494] Sigh, I hope a proper fix is offered for this soon...even a 'cleanup' button would be greatly welcomed. My Q10 has been bulletproof for 5 months until this. In my case, duplicate contacts, up to 12 copies of each, began appearing. The symptom was definitely connected to the latest version of Skype, even though I set contact syncing off. Sadly, though the newest Skype release was much improved, I had to uninstall it to halt the spread of the contact plague. Unfortunately, I have not found a way out of the maze - I am slowly unlinking all copies multiple times, until only the raw contacts are left, and then deleting the copies. Failing to unlink first nukes the good with the bad. It's taken many hours for 800 contacts. I'm not sure what to do next, but imagine a copy to SIM and then a wipe might be in order.

    Dump Skype and if necessary reload the android version. Skype causes a lot of issues on BB10 from popping up when trying to dial a number to the contact duplications. I use my netbook and tablet for Skype and not my phone--but in fairness, I have a Q10 so the screen isn't really big enough for me.
