How To Delete A Phone Number From A Contact On Android
Do you want to delete a phone number that is no longer needed from your contact list on your Android phone? If so, you are in the right place. This article will show you how to remove a phone number from your contact list on an Android device.
The Steps to Delete A Phone Number From A Contact On Android
Android devices have slightly different versions, but the steps to remove a phone number from a contact list are similar. Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1: Open Your Contact List
To open your contact list, locate the Contacts app on your Android device. The icon for this app looks like a silhouette of a head and shoulders against a blue background. When you find the app, tap it, and your contact list will appear.
You can also launch your contact list using the phone app by tapping the “Phone” icon at the bottom of your home screen. From the phone app, tap the “Contacts” tab at the top of the screen to access your contact list.
Step 2: Locate the Contact Whose Number You Want to Delete
From your contact list, locate the contact that has the phone number you want to delete. Once you find the contact, tap it to open it.
Step 3: Edit the Contact Information
After opening the contact, look for the edit button. On most devices, this button appears in the upper-right corner of the screen and appears as a pencil icon. Tap the edit button.
Step 4: Delete the Phone Number
After tapping the edit button, you will see an option to edit the contact’s phone number. Tap the “phone number” field you want to delete, and remove the phone number either by backspacing or delete it manually.
If you have multiple phone numbers for the same contact, make sure to select the right one to delete.
Step 5: Save Your Changes
Once you have removed the phone number from the contact list, tap the “Done” button in the upper-right corner of the screen to save your changes. Doing so will update the contact information to reflect the changes you made.
Can I delete multiple phone numbers at once from a contact list?
Yes, you can remove multiple phone numbers at once from a contact list. Follow steps 1-3 from above. Instead of tapping on the phone number field to delete, tap the “minus” sign (-) button to the right of the phone number you want to delete. When you do this, the phone number you selected will disappear from the list. When you have deleted all the phone numbers you want, tap the “Done” button to save the changes.
Will deleting a phone number from a contact remove it from my call log as well?
Deleting a phone number from a contact will not remove it from your call log. You will need to remove it separately. To do this, open the phone app on your Android device. Tap on the “Recent” tab at the bottom of the screen, and locate the phone number you want to delete. Press and hold the phone number until a menu appears. Select “Delete from call log” to remove the phone number from your Android phone’s call log.
Can I still receive calls and messages from a contact after deleting their phone number?
Yes, you can still receive calls and messages from a contact after deleting their phone number. Deleting a phone number from a contact only removes that particular phone number from the contact’s information. It does not affect the rest of the information or the contact itself. You can still make calls to the contact via another phone number or receive messages from them.
Deleting a phone number from a contact on an Android device is easy. Follow the simple steps above to remove a phone number from your contact list quickly. If you have any questions, you can refer to the FAQs section in this article.
