      I have an iPhone and iPad with the same issue.

      My contact list shows I have thousands of contacts when in reality most of them are duplicates. Other than individually deleting the duplicate contacts, is there a way to mass delete the duplicates? I may be a retired senior citizen but deleting each of the extras is time consuming AND tedious.

      Thank you for your help

      Hello Janice,

      You will want to start off by making a backup of your contacts.

      Open Contacts.
      Select All Contacts.
      Click a contact in the Contacts list.
      Choose File > Export > Export vCard or choose Edit > Select All to select all cards for export.
      Choose where you want to save the files, then click Save.

      Merge duplicate contacts.
      Open Contacts.
      From the Card menu, select Card > Look for Duplicates.
      When asked, click Merge.
      Repeat steps 2 and 3 until no duplicates are found.

      You can also find an article here on komando.com which suggests an app that can clean up your contacts as well.
