I guess the drive must have been a short one as it's such a little thing!
The only way to delete them is to restore the phone as new using iTunes.

I think you have to delete the contact in your icloud account(online). Deleting from your phone is then being "backed-up" again from icloud - I think

no, if the contact was in icloud in the first place, deleting it from the phone would also delete it from icloud. Meg was correct when she said the only way to do it is to restore the device as new

OK - I stand corrected - but due to problems I won't bore you with - my and my husbands iphones are "synced" together so we share contacts (and other things). I thought I'd corrected it but my contacts were still in his phone - so I deleted them - only for them then to be deleted on my phone too!!!! Very quickly after - both phones got those contacts back - due to the icloud back-up being switched on both phones. Apple told me I would have to go to icloud.com and check my contact back-up profile then delete from there what I didn't want. But who knows??
