    Hi

    I have an iPhone 6s running latest IOS and my contacts have gone a bit mad. I recently installed the Outlook email client and feely this might be the reason. In several contacts I have a file now which says "outlook" with a long weblink then underneath is says this contact is read only ....

    I uninstalled Outlook but am stuck with this in my contacts. I'm sure it interferes with my use but in any case I'd like did of it. Os there's a way to do this easily without deleting it from each contact individually?

    I am adding this screenshot to illustrate

    If you have a recent backup that was made before Oulook, wipe the phone and restore using that backup.

    If your backup was made after you installed and setup Outlook, you will have to manually edit all the messed up entries or set up your phone as new. You could also try perusing the Outlook forum online and see if anyone has run across the bug you have experienced.

    Thanks. I'm not sure if it's a bug. I wonder if I just synced my contacts with Outlook when I shouldn't? Anyway it's going to be a PITA to sort going through each one. I might do 10 a day for a while :)
