Windows Phone users are reporting a strange contact bug that results in some contacts being duplicated - which appears to have no clear cause, but manifests itself through the duplication of contacts on the phone, with some contacts appearing more than a dozen times.

According to Long Zheng "testing show that only contacts on the phone are impacted - Gmail and Windows Live contacts seem to be unaffected and removing one or more of the duplicate contacts has no impact on the remaining extras.

The duplicate contacts bug also appears to be impacting a fairly small subset of Windows Phone users, with four reporting problems on a Microsoft Answers forum and two responding to Zheng's blog post with similar problems. Curiously, at least three of those users own Samsung Windows Phone handsets, though that may well be mere coincidence."
