    I just got my first smart phone; Droid Razr M with Jellybean 4.1. I was looking at the contact list that I apparently got from syncing my Yahoo mail account. I noticed a lot of unusual contacts, so I tried deleting them, but got a message that they are read only and that I could only hide them. I did this for a couple of them, but then realized that there were many that I would have to hide and then thought that maybe I should figure out if there was a way to delete them or at least re-sync them or something so that only the contacts that I want get synced to the new phone. Please, if some one could tell me how to re-sync only the contacts that I want, or show me how to delete the unwanted contacts that are read only, including the hidden ones, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I would go to your Yahoo account using a browser and manage the contacts there, it's easier. Your corrections on the WEB should then sync with the contacts on your phone, including deletions.

    By connecting your phone to PC you can delete them.
