“So I'm having trouble PERMANENTLY deleting a contact from my phone! Grr! . A friend of mine changed their number so instead of deleting the contact I just replaced the same contact with a different number but now whenever I type in this persons name when inputing a contact for a text it gives me BOTH options but the other number is deleted from my contacts? Same thing with another number I fully deleted... when I type in this persons name it appears. I must be doing something wrong. Help! How do I permanently delete a number from my phone?
Though we're still searching for a way to delete multiple email Contacts from the iPhone simultaneously, an enterprising developer has now developed a native third-party application that will allow you to delete individual Contacts instead of simply clearing conversations (the iPhone's only option, by default), which will delete all text Contacts with a given contact.
The interface is still a bit clunky -- Contacts are organized and labeled by incoming number, not contact name -- and there are some quirks (like the misspelling of the word "Delete"). Still, this third-party app fills a lapse in functionality, and we can only hope for more like it.
The application can be downloaded and installed from the Utilities section in Installer.app. For more information on using Installer.app, see our iPhone Applications guide.
