I have duplicate contacts in my iPhone, not knowing their source or how to safely delete them.
I synced my iPhone contacts with Outlook via iTunes. I have 220 contacts in Outlook. I estimate 100 of these are duplicates in the iPhone i.e in both the Contact and Phone app. They are apparently exact duplicates.
The strange thing is that the duplicate ones do not get synced to Outlook so there are no duplicate contacts there.
I don't know which of two contacts is linked to the respective Outlook contact, so I fear that simply deleting one contact may delete it in Outlook as well, which would be bad.
Does anyone have any ideas on the cause and cure for this behaviour?
