Duplicate contact information is appearing in my iPhone - and iPad - Contacts List. Some contacts appear two or three times but some are duplicated in far greater numbers. Contact information has initially only been input once. I have tried to delete the duplicated entries - of which there are many - but they keep reappearing! iCloud is installed on both devices. I would really appreciate any advice to overcome this problem. Many thanks in advance for help offered.

Check to see what information is in each one and add that information into one. (generally they are not all the same).

I've had some that were the same, and I deleted the multiple listing(s) and re-synced, and that seemed to have fixed it.
