Sorry, no. This is the Only one of about 30 contacts that shows Two Accounts, one with a little camera next to the > button. Those two appear otherwise identical in every way. Not sure why it chose this contact to double up.

(1) Look at Chapter 26 here -> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4319 :
 • If the FaceTime contact is for an iPod touch, it will be an email address.
 • If the FaceTime contact is for another iPhone, it will be the iPhones cell number.
Is the FaceTime contact info you are trying to remove an email address or a iPhone number?
We can give you specific suggestions based on your answer.

(1) Look at Chapter 26 here ->
Not a unified/linked contact; no link at the bottom of the contact info.

(2) If a Unified contact is not causing your difficulty, we will need more information.

How you remove FaceTime contact information depends on the kind of contact you have and whether the contact is for an iPod touch or another iPhone.

As explained in the Additional Information here -> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4319
:

 • If the FaceTime contact is for an iPod touch, it will be an email address.

 • If the FaceTime contact is for another iPhone, it will be the iPhones cell number.

Is the FaceTime contact info you are trying to remove an email address or a iPhone number?
Not an iPhone or iPod (its an HTC Wildfire with Android). He has a normal cellphone number and an email addressat hotmail.co.uk
Note: the double listing is in favourites for the phone app, and the contact is not doubled-up in the Contacs app (just noticed now).
Neither of those articles were relevant to removing the double listing in favourites.
