    When I first set up my phone, I synced my Google contacts (from 2 accounts). I have since cleaned up my contacts, no longer syncing the Google contacts ... I only have my phone contacts. After cleaning things up, I still have 2 empty "Google" contact groups.

    My question: Is it possible to remove a contact group? I haven't found a way to do it and I have had no luck searching here or on the rest of the internet. I just want to clear up the clutter. I think it's silly to have 2 empty contact groups. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    in contacts, there is an option to control which account(s)' contacts display...did you try that setting?

    Just a question - you are storing your contacts only on your phone? Why don't you want to sync w/the cloud so you have them backed up automatically? Right now, you lose your phone or something goes wrong with it, you lose all your contacts...

    I know that I can switch between the groups. That's not my issue. My problem is that I have 2 empty contact groups that I will never use. I want to get rid of them. I turned off syncing for the contacts on my Google accounts so they're not even on my phone any more ... just the empty groups.

    I use Verizon's Backup Assistant to back up my contacts. I used that on my last phone too. It does everything I need.
