Hundreds of duplicate contacts??

I have ACT 2008 and just looked at my contact list.  It has 100's of duplicate contacts.  How does that happens?.  I am spending all day deleting them manually.  I do use companian link to sync the contacts to Blackberry.  Thanks. 

PS: there has to be an easier way to delete.  sometimes i have the same name 9 times.

This is known to happen with CompanionLink, especially if the Blackberry also syncs with Outlook, Exchange or Google.

The only way I've seen to sync reliably is Handheld Contact. See:

To clean the dupes, have a look at Duplicate Contact Wizard from:
