    After a restore due to battery issues I somehow turned on contacts under iCloud and now my contacts are mixed and doubled with my wife's. is there any way to fix this faster than going through and deleting all of her contacts on my phone 1 by 1? If not, I assume I just flip the contacts switch in the iCloud menu to off and begin deleting? This shouldn't mess with her contacts correct? We share an Apple ID and iCloud ID.

    No easy way if you share an Apple ID and have iCloud contacts turned on. My wife and I likewise share an Apple ID (I consider it easier that way) and her contacts show up on my phone and mine on hers. Not a big deal for us as we do not have that many contacts but I can see where it could be for a couple who have many diverse contacts. And yes, just turn off iCloud and begin deleting.
