    Is there a way to delete multiple contacts at once? I have over 100 contacts I no longer need in my phone, but I CAN'T lose all of my contacts. Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this? Or if there is an app to do this, that would be great too. I'm also jailbroken, so there has to be some way to do this...Thanks in advace!

    Not that I'm aware but If you sync with a server try to see if you can delete them from there and they will remove from your phone also ...

    Maybe copytrans contacts?

    Here is how it is supposed to work:



    Otherwise, another way to delete only ALL of your contacts and not many selected at once is to enable a dummy exchange account then disable it and tap "Delete contacts from iPhone".

    I had the same problem. I downloaded the free app called "groups" by Qbix, inc. (I searched for 'groups' in the app store and this app was the first one in the list)
    As soon as you open the groups app it has all your contacts. You can tap multiple contacts (a red dot to the left of each one) and then at the top on the right there is a little white arrow that says "actions". tap on that & you can delete, copy, or e-mail all of the selected contact at once. I just removed now about 100 contacts from my phone in 5 min.

    Thanks for your replies. I used the suggested pc app to delete some contacts at once - good if you want to delete certain contacts. I noticed that, on the other hand, you can delete all contacts at once by turning iCloud contact sync on and then turning it off tapping on "Delete contacts from iPhone". i guess this is the easiest solution to delete all contacts at once from the iphone 5.

    Indeed that's an option to delete all contacts at once - an alternative to having synced contacts to Exchange and then turning Exchange contact sync off.

    As some mentioned: Contacts Duster Pro will do the trick.

    Junk app. Makes you think its free, share this or like that to keep it free. When you do what it says it makes you start over again.

    Contact Duster as suggested works. The free version lets you choose 10 at a time pretty quickly.

    From my point of view the best app is OneContact from German developer CAS Software in cooperation with the Hasso Plattner Institute.
    It can delete duplicates AND additionally resolve conflicts with nearly the same contacts. Performance in analyzing: 1000 / min

    make a good list in Google, Yahoo , or outlook if you use outlook you will have to import to Google or yahoo
    log into you icloud desktop control panel select contacts on the gear or star at the bottom select all and the delete after that.
    re sync with Google or yahoo and they should be there.

    I also use Contacts Duster Pro, there's a free version but has only limited contacts on the check box to delete. The PRO is a paid app with great features. But if you dont have to delete so many contacts, try the free one first. On the other hand use iCloud, using keyboard is faster to delete. hihihi )

    Spring Clean. The best application available on the app store to delete multiple contacts in a second. It's totally free and it's super amazing and simple.

    Login to your iCloud account online, click "contacts". From there I just held down the shift key and selected the ones that were in a row that I wanted to delete, then hit the delete key.
    This is the fastest way I have found.

    Download app name Groups. It's very easy to delete multiple contacts and you can create groups of your contacts too and send multiple messages
