    I had this problem and I find it rather irritating. My phone seems to be copying contacts from phone memory to the SIM card memory automatically without my knowing. In the phone memory (people), I have 1 entry for each contacts. However, in my sim card memory, I have 8 entries for each contact! It seems like the phone copies and replicates them. Few weeks ago, I had 3 entries for each contact and with no other ways on hand, I had deleted all SIM card contacts. However, it now shows 8 entries for each contact! I did not sync any facebook or google account. Anyone has the same problem and any idea how to solve this?

    Turn your phone off (a restart will probably do it - it'll clear off all the duplicates) - the next time you turn it on it should be back down to one contact entry per person. It does this from time to time - a silly bug!
