How to remove your cell phone number from FaceBook
Why don’t I see a “Delete Contact” option? If the option to “Delete Contact” is absent, it’s usually because the contact is linked and being synchronized from an applications such as Facebook or Twitter. To access “Settings,” go to “Settings.” Click on “Facebook” (or whatever app contains your contact).
Open the web browser on your PC or Mac, go to iCloud.com, then Contacts and choose the contacts you’d want to remove. To select more than one at a time, press and hold down the Control key. Then either hit the delete key on your keyboard or pick Remove from the drop-down menu.
For example, these contacts may have been set up by WhatsApp or Skype, as well as other communication programs. These contacts are temporarily stored on the device’s memory. As a result, you cannot remove these read-only contact information in the same way that you can erase normal contacts.
Duplicate contacts on your iPhone can be the consequence of using iCloud, or because of a problem with your address book or email client on your computer. When you sync your iPhone with multiple services, you may generate duplicate contacts by accident.
Choose the account to which you want to remove duplicate contacts. Within the app, tap on the Find Duplicates button. The program will show all duplicate and similar contacts in your list after the scan is complete. Tap the Delete Duplicates button to eliminate any duplicates that were discovered during the scan.
Depending on the platform you use, it’s probable that your contacts list is linked to your iCloud or Google account. In bulk, you may delete duplicates by logging into your iCloud or Google Contacts account. The ‘find duplicates’ option in Google Contacts was built in automatically.
