    Not sure if this is something I just overlooked but about 2 months ago I went through my contacts and erased about 20 contacts I just didn't need anymore.. It was a good purging lol

    Anyway if I open messages or contacts they obviously are all gone through out all my devices. The strange thing is if I open my photos and chose to message someone that way all my contacts new and old show up, everyone I have ever deleted. I didn't think it was normal and once you delete a contact it's gone?

    It actually came in handy because I needed one of the numbers I deleted.

    Messages and the like tend to keep their own cache of contact information that gets cleared/updated somewhat separately/differently. Quite a few people don't like that as deleted contacts can appear there and there has been some discussion of it all over the years. In iOS 7 at least it seems you can select one of those contacts now and remove them from the list of recent contacts.

    this is why I installed iCleaner Pro on my Jailbroken iPhone 5. It deletes Contact, SMS, application and other caches. :)
