The only time I saw that happen is when I tried to restore my contacts via PIMBackup (or whatever it is called) and then let my phone sync with our exchange server. In my case it doubled them on the phone AND the exchange server so I just used Outlook to delete the duplicates as it is easier than trying to do it on the phone. Unfortunately, once they are there...they are there and you will have to delete them manually.

If you make changes in outlook and then resync it should make the phone look like outlook

So when you sync the phone to your computer, it automatically saves your contacts???.......I have syncd my phone and I can't find a contacts folder....What am I missing.......the search option isnt helping any...

I had the same problem and I think it was because of Windows Live Messenger....which is now windows dead messenger on my laptop. Every time I synced my phone it would re-add my contacts. So, I ended up with up to 6 of everyone. Real PITA. Disabeld WLM and don't have the problem anymore.

happens to me with all the default contacts, such as "*2 customer service" i think it has something to do with how the device handles conflicts. (exchange defaults)

It used to be with ActiveSync you had the option of combining when you reset the PDA. You had to be careful or you got double. This does not seem to happen with Vista (no options), in my hands. I have had to reset many times because there are so many sync errors. I have found you will get a synch error requiring replacement of all contacts if you interrupt a sync in progress, so I watch out as I have 3000 contacts... not popular, just the end result of a long career in academics.
