    Awhile ago I use to save cydia backups to my phonebook using pkgbackup. Now I use dropbox. These cydia backups still show as a contact in my phonebook. I can't seem to click on the contact and delete it. Anyone know how to delete it? Thanks

    Did you try deleting it in iTunes or iCloud (whichever you use to back up your contacts)

    Thanks for the reply however I'm not sure where to go in itunes or icloud to even search for contacts to delete it? Gmail is my default account so I searched my contacts in gmail but it's not there either.

    Again, your contacts should be in iCloud, open the iCloud website, log into your AppleID, open contacts, delete the entry using Edit option followed by Delete
