    I don't know if this helps: for some time, I used Smart Merge - Duplicate Contacts Cleanup... I've noticed when looking for it, that it's free at the moment. I haven't used it for quite a while, so I really can't tell you if it's good.

    Thanks for effort. That did not help much. I have one question : How can I erase all contacts at one click so I can import fresh from a file for example access data file and delete it . Thanks.

    To bulk delete (or delete a lot) of messages at once, I have successfully used the iPhone app "ContactDel" ($.99, USD, link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/contactdel-delete-multiple/id399148990?mt=8). As you can see, one of the options is to delete all:

    Hopefully, this will work for you, also.
