No, Desktop Manager does not count your contacts such as that, it counts them same as outlook.
I wonder if there are contacts saved on you SIM card which are creating the duplicates. Remember, the SIM card will ONLY store one phone per name, and would create duplicate names in your address book.
I disagree. As far as I know, Desktop Manager does not touch the SIM card address book at all - doesn't even back it up.
