Find duplicate numbers in Nokia C6 address book

Duplicate entries in mobile phone address book causes names not to be displayed and create unnecessary confusions.
Certain models of Samsung and Sony Ericsson phones avoid this by alerting whenever already exisitng number is saved into the address book.Unfortunately, most Nokia phones do not have this feature.
There arises a need to find duplicate entries in Nokia phone. This trick works only in Symbian phones since Symbian phones alone have the phone search feature.

To find duplicate contacts in Nokia phones, simply open the "Search" application and enter the number, the phone will display all names under which the number is saved.
