Default Does Outlook 2010 have a remove duplicates feature? If not, why no

Syncing my HTC HD2 and every other phone I have ever had, has had a habit of
creating duplicates in Outlook. It is starting to drive me insane. Shouldn't
this be a simple feature in ANY contact management program? Can somone point
it out to me because I just don't like using 3rd party software for this
stuff.

Thanks...

Thanks Brian... I guess that is the simple answer, sorry man just SO
frustrating, sometimes the simpliest most obvious things seem overlooked.

It's not overlooked. It's just hard to determine what "duplicate" means. To
some it means every single field must be replicated and that would fit my
definition as well, but to others, it means nothing more than a match in, say,
the File As value.
