iMore Question

I got a problem with double contacts.
I use IPhone, icloud and outlook.

I had a problem with double contacts.
To fix this I moved (not copied) all my contacts from the Icloud folder to my Hotmail contacts (in Microsoft outlook 2010)
Checked online on icloud.com. All my contacts gone.
Then 1 by 1 contact. updated and moved (not copy) to icloud. (also in Microsoft outlook)
every now and then synced and checked on Icloud.com. yes my contacts were there.
At the end my Hotmail was empty and my icloud was full. (no doubles)
Copied all contacts to Hotmail account.
all good.
Now it is a day later and again I have got doubles in my icloud account.

Can you help me with this problem?

You have to "link" the contacts.
Open the Phone app and tap on Contacts (on the iPad, tap on Contacts app)
Now, tap on a contact that you want to merge with some other contact
Tap Edit from the top-right
Scroll down and you should see ?Linked Contacts?
Tap on ?link contacts??
Choose the other contact you want to merge
Tap on Link
Once the contact gets added, tap on Done to finish editing the contact
