Duplicate contacts

Had some trouble with the initial import of my contacts from my Bold 9900. Eventually, I was able to get everything across, but at the expense of multiple duplicate contacts.  Short of manually deleting each duplicate, is there an easy way to tidy up my Contacts?  


Thought about using my desktop to try and speed this process up, but Link does not synch contacts with my address book on my Mac.


Thx for any ideas...

Re: Duplicate contacts

the contacts may also be showing you all contacts. Meaning twitter, facebook, etc which will show multiple times in some cases. When you open a contact you can link them (bottom menu) and it will tie them all into just one contact. Click link and it will group them and allow you to select the multiple occurances in to one instead of deleting them. Or click on bottom left where it says all and change it to sim and it will filter the contacts to just what was imported to your sim card.
