I have one or two contacts on the People app's list with two or more duplicated phone numbers.

How do I delete them individually, without deleting the whole contact ?

I don't see this option on the edit button on the top right corner

Click on the menu button at the top, then edit. When it lets you edit the numbers, click on the number you want to remove. Then you should see a minus sign on the right, click on that. It should remove that number. Then save. Hope this helps.

Edit. Here is a screenshot of how it looks on my phone:

  • It didn't work for me, it was so annoying that such basic thing will not work. I had to delete the contact and recreate with only one phone number.

  • Won't work for me either on the contact screen there are 2 numbers the right one and the wrong one, I hit edit and it only shows the right one on that screen to correct!
