thefatmould: Never had that issue but have had a raft of other problems. It is a bad phone...

If your talking about duplicate contacts and or the phone appearing as it is roaming, there is a fix out.

Go to a Telecom store and they will replace your SIM free of charge with an updated one.

To the OP best to go to a store and get them to check it out, if it's the SIM it may need replacing. Note that there is a charge if the SIM is damaged, however if it's just faulty Telecom will replace it.
