    How to delete contacts from iPhone?

    Most owners of the supported iPhone, after the purchase often have to deal with the fact that their "new old" phone, is filled with the contacts of the previous owner. He apparently thought it necessary to provide you with this valuable information, but most likely he was, like many others, not aware of how to delete contacts from the iPhone.

    This can be done manually by entering the contact list, then selecting the one you need to click on the “Edit” icon, then “Edit” and “Delete”. Manual removal is convenient if you need to erase a small number of contacts, or selected numbers, but what to do if there are a thousand or more contacts. Yes, and make removal, a couple dozen entries manually, you see, uncomfortable.

    There is always a way out and in this case it is extremely simple.

    In order to remove all contacts from your iPhone, you should use the following step-by-step instruction.

    1. We connect the standard iTunes service and sync with the iPhone. (by pressing the "Sync" button in the phone control menu)
    2. Open the device tab and select our connected iPhone there.
    3. In the context menu, we turn to the “Information” item, and tick the “Synchronize contacts with” item. Synchronize with the program in which the list of contacts is empty.
    4. Below in the tab "Add-ons" mark the option "Contacts"
    5. Click "Apply" and in the dialog box that appears, click "Replace information".

    As a result, after synchronizing and performing all the above actions, the phonebook of your iPhone will become absolutely empty, and if necessary, you can freely enter new contact information into it.

    That's all! In this example, we successfully examined how to delete contacts from the iPhone 4. In the same way, deletion is also performed on previous iPhone models (2G, 3G, 3GS), and on the current 4S and the newest iPhone 5.

    This procedure takes a very small amount of time. It is worth paying tribute to the comfort, convenience and speed of iTunes.

    It is worth noting that it is easiest to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook or the Windows Contact Book. It is necessary to take into account that the contact list should be empty. Otherwise, the old saved contacts will automatically appear on your iPhone.
