There are times when your phone creates multiple copies of the same contact. This may happen when you accidentally synchronize all contacts, change the SIM card, or reset the device to factory settings.
Duplicated contacts are inconvenient because they take up unnecessary space on the phone and make it difficult to navigate the contact list. Manually deleting contacts is tedious and can take a long time. Fortunately, there is a simpler way to solve this problem, and that is to merge duplicate contacts.
