To delete a contact on an android device, follow these steps.

Step 1

To open the Contacts app, tap the “Contacts” app icon on your Android device’s home screen. The Contacts icon on basic Android devices is orange and has a person’s face superimposed on it.

If you have a high number of contacts, then put the contact’s name in the “Search” form at the top of the Contacts directory to see a list of matches.

Step 3

Hold down the button on the contact you want to delete. At this point, your Android device will enter bulk contacts management mode, with check boxes next to all of your contacts.

Step 4

Select all of the contact entries you want to delete with a check mark, and then press the “Trash” icon in the top right corner of your screen.

The Trash symbol is shaped like a trash can. The Delete Contact prompt displays when you tap the “Trash” icon.
