    When emailing a photo on iPhone 4, the email addresses for the contact are presented. A couple of these are incorrect, probably since I entered them wrong some time ago. However, the addresses are correct in the contacts list as well as in my email account.

    Does the iPhone have a memory function that is causing this? How do I delete the incorrect contact info?

    This is enough to drive a person crazy.

    Thanks for the help.

    Those email addresses you see are cached in the phone and you can't delete them. It stinks big time that apple hasn't allowed users to delete from there. I think it's possible to do on a jailbroken iPhone.

    Edit - The one thing you can do to get rid of them is completely wipe your phone. I'm not sure if a restore will work (I'm guessing it won't) but I know it will work if you set it up as a new phone. A huge pain in the butt.
