Why won't my "deleted" contacts stay deleted when I got a new Android phone? When I got the new phone they said "all your google info, contacts, calendar etc will stay the same and just download on your new phone". Well they didn't. All my "deleted contacts were also downloaded. Also, anyone that had a same email address (like husband & wife) merged together and deleted one of the contact pictures. So Mrs now has Mr picture & all are one contact now. Not Happy! It took a lot of work to get my contacts just right and now I don't know if the phone numbers are even the current phone numbers! ALSO, some of my calendar birthdays are off by a day or two. "sad face"!
