    How do i remove this groups icon in my address book? i deleted a contact, and then all of a sudden, all my contacts were sorted by last name first name instead of first name last name and this groups button was added.... wtf...

    i can fix the last name first name bit

    go settings>mail,contacts, calendar and towards the bottom og the page in the contacts field you can choose that option...

    as for the groups thing i don't think i've ever seen that before

    Are your contacts synced with anything else? I know I have two groups.....exchange and all from my mac

    wait nope mine has it and it takes you to where you can choose the places your synced with

    so I imagine if you have a gmail account that your contacts sync with and when you plug into itunes you have it sync with your outlook (or mac equivalent) it creates a second grouping my also syncs with mobile me so i have 3 groups.

    Your screenshot shows 2 groups:
    - on the iPhone
    - Exchange sync

    That's why you get the "Groups" button.

    for your email accounts on the phone is one of them a gmail account?

    if you have a gmail account in your email it can sync contacts with google and it shows up as an exchange server.

    Hi Brian, this group button appeared because you (or a sync) created a group on your iPhone. To manage group of contacts (create or delete), we have developped a free app : Easy Group.
    If you want to remove this Group button :
    1- Download Easy Group : http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/easy-group/id461469079?mt=8&uo=4
    2- Launch Easy Group, all your groups will appear
    3- Tap "Edit"
    4- Tap on red cross next to your unwanted groups.

    Or you can simply use this group feature to classify your contacts, send group emails / texts.
    Hope this helps.
