    What is the process to remove a contact from read-only in order to enable deleting the contact?

    Thanks for answering what has to be a trivial question.

    Go into your dialer, tap contacts, long press on the contact you wish to delete. Select delete...done.

    Or am I misunderstanding? ?

    Hadn't tried that but when I did I had the same result; can only hide a Read-Only contact not Delete.

    Any suggestions?

    unless you root, I think that's all you can do. I could very well be wrong.

    Thanks, I'll wait until after ICS.

    Or, if this really bothers me I may do a total reset and send a new Outlook file to the RAZR.

    Having the same problem since I upgraded to Ice Cream. It appears the contacts come in from Facebook. I hid one and now I haven't been able to find it to even try to delete it. Grrrr
