How to Remove All Contacts in Android ICS ( 4.0+ )


Like the earlier versions of android, latest update ice cream sandwich (4.0+) does not have an option to delete all the contacts in Default Contacts application. In Android 4.0+ we can only delete each contacts separately in Default Contact Application. If we want to delete all the contacts it is annoying that we should delete the all the contacts separately.Here is the simple solution to clear all the contacts ....

UPDATE : You can also apply the same method to delete contacts from jelly bean.

How to :
- Navigate to Settings--->Apps--->Contacts Storage
- Now Click Clear data

Done ! Now Check your Contact Application All contacts will be deleted !

  5. Thanks very much for sharing this info. Really saved me a lot of time, as I use many rooms. Made a mistake and imported contacts which doubled entry to over 2000+. Please go to www.pendrivelinux.com and use the Yum I.exe. If you don't know about Livecd. Thanks again, Chris Bmad

  18. Thanks for taking the time to write this information. Shame on android and android phone makers who do not provide this information in manuals or on their websites.

    It is so irritating when its not intuitive !
