    Are you using HTC? Their 'People' contact viewer allows you to 'link' contacts together.

    On the default Google 'Contacts' app you can edit a contact and 'join' it to another. Effectively the same as People's link, but not as easy to use.

    Using the HTC one you have to do it one by one, and it also still takes up the same space on the phone.

    After doing a back up and restore I have lots of duplicate contacts and so it's taking up around 35mb! Tried and tried to find something to properly merge the contacts with no luck.

    I'd suggest getting all your contacts converted over to Google contacts. The main reason being that they are automatically synced so you effectively have a backup at all times.

    Fastest and easiest way is from your PC. Log into gmail with your browser, and click on Contacts. Select the Other Contacts filter, choose all the contacts you wish, then in the dropdown menu choose Merge.
