ICS Duplicate Contact Merging
This is my first android phone, but I can't find a way to merge contacts. Some people are in my phone literally a dozen different times, it's nuts. From my searches on other forums, there seemed to have been a way of doing it on older versions of Android by clicking a 'merge' or 'link' option, but I don't see that anywhere on ICS. Any ideas?

Re: ICS Duplicate Contact Merging
If you have your contacts synced to your Google Account you can merge duplicate contacts from a computer web browser.
Just log into Gmail, then click "gmail" on the top left, then "contacts".
Then click "more" > "find and merge duplicates..."

From the People app, go to the contact you want to merge the others into, then from the menu select Edit. Once on the edit page, from the menu select Join. Repeat as many times as needed.
This is from a Nexus S, by the way. I presume the Galaxy Nexus is the same, but I'm not sure.
