    Dear members, on my iPhone 6 plus a long list of telephone numbers are being populated at the bottom of my telephone contact list. Many are numbers associated with my contacts, some are not. My wife says...you never scan to the bottom anyway so why does it bother you...well, it does. Any help on this one?

    thanks

    Is it contacts synced over from your Facebook app or maybe other phones using the same iCloud account and having contact sync turned on?

    Hmm, interesting. I'm probably one one in a million that doesn't have a Facebook app installed, but the icloud comment has me thinking.

    Ok go to settings, iCloud, contacts.
    If that option is on contacts on other devices get synced over to your phone also.

    Applejuiced, here is what I did. As you suggested I turned off the contacts radio button in the mail icloud setting. I then went back to the list, list is still there. I clicked on a number I recognized and hit edit then delete. I then looked for that contact number in my contact list to see if had deleted as well, it did not, to be sure I rebooted my phone and checked again, still there in my contact list but gone in the populated numbers. It may be that I have to manually delete each number entry and with that icloud setting off they may not return. Thank you for your help.

    Yes, it's a pain to manually delete them one by one but at least they won't come back any more:)

    I don't let Facebook or any other app connect to my contacts or have access to. I think that could attribute to it, but glad it's resolved! :)
