I noticed that after I upgraded to ISO5 my contact names are duplicated !!! In some cases they appear 3 timees! Yeah I can manually delete the duplicated contacts, but there has to be a better way??

    if you have choosen to sync contacts with both iCloud and the computer (Windows/Google/outlook/yahoo) might result duplicate entries. So use singlton sync on all your contacts, calender entries to avoid further inconvienients.
    Anyway If it's such annoying to remove them manually,

    • sync all your contacts to PC. (i.e: Outlook)
    • delete all contact details from your iCloud + Phone
    • use 3rd party PC tool to remove duplicates+merge entires via chosed program (i.e Outlook).
    • after removing duplicates,re-sync contacts with iTunes as a fresh copy.
    • finally, use a singlton sync as iCloud, instead of both local+cloud. otherwise it'll messup again...
