    Hi,

    I just got a new 4S, and use my father's iTunes store account for iTunes purchases (as I don't have a credit card), but I use my own iCloud account. The problem I have, is that all of his contacts have somehow made their way to my phone, and I have no way of deleting them. I have tried to sign out of iCloud etc and turn off contact syncing, but they remain. I have also gone to the contacts section under the 'info' tab on iTunes when syncing the device, but that does not help either.

    Any help or advice? They are clogging up my contact list.

    on the phone itself you have to go to contacts then select one and "edit". Scrolling down to the bottom you will see "delete contact".

    Not sure about doing it in iTunes. sorry.

    In Itunes

    Connect using the cable.

    When the phone appears, choose "Restore"

    Then choose "Setup as new phone (you will have to name it, but that can be changed later)

    Thanks for your help, but I'm going to have to manually delete them :(
