You can not delete it completely, unless you want to do a factory reset. Someone I know called Apple about this, and this is what they told them. The only way you can completely delete a contact out of your phone everywhere, is to do a factory reset and then use icloud to resync your contacts. I wish Apple would change this, and do a major update! I've had my iPhone 5 since the end of Septmember, and this is the only thing I dislike about the whole phone, period. Maybe if enough people complain, they might do something about it? But, I doubt it! Goodluck!
