    I have the same issue on my Droid incredible. Really aggravating to manage contacts. Not all of my contacts are in my Gmail contacts list. I have many contacts I want to delete and can’t figure out how.

    Had the same problem. Will removing the Yahoo autosync remove all the contacts, or just let me delete the contact if I wish?

    I had this problem too. It was because I had my phone sync my contacts from my yahoo email. If you remove the automatic sync from where ever you imported them from such as an email or facebook they will go away. You can do this my going to settings and hit accounts & sync, then remove.

    Your other option is to link the two names together and they will be one person. Just go to people and hit the person you want to link in the upper right hand corner it will give you options of who to link it to.

    I have a droid incredible Purchased in Nov 2010. Some of my contacts have two entries. In one case I want to delete the second entry. However, holding down the contact only facilitated Call Moble or Send Contact as vcard. If I hold down the first contact of the same name I get the full option menu with delete. the contacts are not linked.
