I have nearly a 1000 contacts, and finding the doubled up ones took me less than 5 mins.

Nice work around, even if i do say so myself!!!

(Still would be nice to have this function on the phone and/or in Gmail...Gmail should automatically scan your contacts for duplicate data sets, and ask if you want them deleted).
Gmail will scan for duplicates, logon using a pc and click on contacts on the lower right hand side of the contacts window there's an option to find and merge duplicates.
