Hope you can please help me.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus. I use Google as main Phone Book storage instead of the device, and I have Google contacts displayed.
I recently deleted many contacts as part of clean-up efforts in the holiday season. However, there are 2 contact entries coming up in 'Recently Added'. I deleted them by doing the long-press/tap and delete. The phone advised that they are deleted, but the contact entries have never left the 'Recently Added' section. The entries no longer have phone numbers (you can't call or SMS them using the left or right swipe shortcuts), so it doesn't make sense to have them kept on my phone book.
Has this happened to you? What can I do to be able to delete these contacts in the Recently Added section? Also, can I turn off the Recently Added section altogether?
Appreciate your support on this please.
So I found this on Android Central could you give these steps a try?
Could you post a screenshot?
Are you using the stock contacts app or did you download a third-party?
I'm using the Stock Contacts app.
Here, screenshot of the 2 contacts. These are empty (no number if you swipe to call them) and can also not be looked up on Contacts anymore.
I deleted them using the hold-and-press method then move to trash. Problem persists.
Are they saved to your Google Account?
