You can also search for a contact by tapping the search bar or type in a contact’s name if you know it. Once you find the contact, tap their name and select Delete from my device.

If you delete a contact from your Android device, it will also be removed from all other devices that have access to this account (for example: tablet, PC). Unfortunately if you want to undo this action you cannot because contacts are permanently deleted after the process is complete. However, we do respect and support your privacy and making changes like these is important to us so we won’t ask for any reason as to why you’re deleting contacts.

There might be two possible reasons that you can’t delete Google contacts from your phone.

One, your device doesn’t permit you to remove the contacts stored in the application;  or Two, you do not have any Google contacts stored on your device.

Don’t worry if the first situation is true;  you can still delete it by following these steps:

-Open Gmail App on Phone (Swipe down with two fingers) -Tap Accounts tab (top right cor­ner of screen) -Select info Button -Tap Contacts Tab (Bottom Left Corner of screen) -Under Contact Lists for this account choose edit option and then select Delete, don‍ ‘t forget to check both boxes. If want to delete all contacts at once, repeat the same process for “All Contacts”.

Please note that Gmail is an email client and it does not store contacts as such. So if you want to remove your contact permanently from your device, try to sync Google account with your phone .

What is the best way to backup and restore my contacts using iCloud?

The best way to backup and restore contacts with iCloud is to save them on the iCloud website. On the “Settings” page in your browser, you can click on “Account” then select your Apple ID at the top of the tab bar. Clicking on “iCloud” will take you to a listing of all your data currently stored in iCloud. Clicking on “Contacts-backups” will display backups selected with or without pictures, so be sure only pictures are showing if photos are important contact information. To select which contacts should be displayed next time, scroll down until you find what you want and uncheck all other checkboxes by clicking on them before making any changes—a single box with checkmark next to it represents currently selected contact.
“Scheduled Contacts Backup” is checked by default and will automatically update as you make changes to your connected devices. If this applies, check the box next to “Contacts-backups” and uncheck all other boxes that appear with a single one showing then click “Back Up Now.”

Then, in Account Settings within Password & Sign-in step 3 of 2 confirm that “Allow sync only with ____” is set to “This computer”. Now repeat these steps on Gmail in Chrome on your Android phone.

2) From your Android device with Gmail open tap Menu then scroll down and tap Sync > Remove _____ from contacts _______ (Electronics step 4 of 6). When it asks for confirmation make sure there’s a checkmark next to Sync all contacts outside my account (contacts will not be deleted from the phone only Google is removed). To re-sync, go back to Settings > Accounts & Sync and make sure all your personal information is signed in (Gmail, Contacts, Calendar etc).

 If you don’t sync your contacts with Google, can you still delete them?

Theoretically, yes. But there is a frightening caveat: Deleting from the phone means you can never retrieve them again. This is because sync backs up your contacts to your Gmail account and deleting from the phone will delete them from the back-up as well. You’ll want to use contact management tools on the PC if at all possible because they don’t rely on a back-up service that can be lost or corrupted in some way.
