iPhone settings (Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendars/MobileMe)

- turn OFF "Contacts," wait and then select DELETE from my iPhone.
- Turn ON "Contacts," wait and then select MERGE

- turn OFF "Calendars," wait and then select DELETE from my iPhone.
- Turn ON "Calendars," wait and then select MERGE

Seemed to work for me

Note for non Mac, non mobileme userers a similar solution works. e.g. if using MS Outlook and Exchange synch over the air. You can remove the duplicates caused by synching with PC by:
- go into settings/mail contacts calendars
- select active exchange account
- turn off 'contacts' - when prompted, delete
- after deleted turn on contacts and when prompted, delete from iphone
- repeate same process for calendar

I've been really struggling with this issue. It even followed me after a restore of 3.1.2. (Which makes sense; coming from a backup and not setting up as a new phone.)

However, this simple tip cleaned things up in just a few easy steps and a couple of minutes. Thanks!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! This has been driving me nuts for the last two days and I couldn't find a solution that worked! This was the easiest solution I have seen yet and worked flawlessly for me!

This worked for me, too, and was very simple. Thanks.
