How to Delete Duplicate Contacts on Android
For the longest time, I have been annoyed by the state of my contacts on Android. Between college and work, friends and work, my boss and my suppliers and customers, I had over 800 contacts that were almost impossible to manage. Then I decided to set aside a few hours one day and go through them all. Now that my contact list is as pristine as possible, I still find myself with the odd duplicate every now and then. Is there a thread that I can follow to have my duplicated contacts deleted?
