Unable to delete or edit contacts

someone can guide me with a problem that I have with the happy phonebook. Took a long time looking for the previous thread and see no solution, so here goes:
 
Not long ago I have the SGS2. I connected the PC with the kies and after many problems I updated it, I made a backup, etc. I would also downloaded the address book of Outlook Express (which, incidentally, has now disappeared me the PC. Directly no longer exists). When I made the upgrade I remember that I warned about the contacts could not be updated with gmail or something. I honestly do not remember. It would be the emotion of the moment.
 
To which we go: now I get a lot of contacts on the phone that I did not put the majority only email addresses. The thing is that if I want to delete one says, "You can not delete contacts from read-only accounts only can be hidden.". If I give to accept the contact goes into limbo; that is supposedly not cleared, I do not know how to see him or where he is.
 
On the other hand, if I try to edit any of these contacts makes me a warning that says "Unable to edit SNS contacts on the phone." So, I have a lot of contacts that I can not do anything. Why is this?
 
When the list of contacts get an icon of a silhouette of a person on a green background, it is that contact is connected to another, right? He just made me such links. So far so good, but I go into some of these links and contact linking it is himself and not let me disassociate.
 
Conclusion: do not understand anything ...: mad: Help, help! Or a box of aspirin!
All this comes now going to put some order in my contacts and put them in gmail step, but ... ugh ... this is chaos!
 
Saying that the phone is not rooted and installed applications that may be accessing the address book are: yahoo mail, WhatsApp, Viber, FriendCaster, go chat, calendar smooth ... I dunno, I guess until the radio can access. In addition, I imported the contacts from the SIM to the phone memory and SD no contact. Automatic synchronization of the programs mentioned above and the "background data" option I have also enabled.

Do not worry. when you're in the contacts menu and give copies to all the phone settings then mark only see the phone. and end edit and synchronize with google.

Thank : I appreciate the input. Anyway I do not understand why I can not edit or delete those records. Yesterday, I appeared with its all- photo and Facebook contacts. Today half of them lack me, though I have done nothing (at least consciously).
 
On the other hand, I connected to kies and see that there are a few contacts that has put me on the phone, others as they are to gmail and a lot of them and I see them in the kies. That is, I see they are on the phone, but not in the kies with the connected phone.
 
So, I will continue with the contacts made a total mess, because I spend a lot of great gigs stick poking data to my mobile brand then do what he wants with them and have to start over. Sometimes they want to do things as 'cool' as interconnected and everything, just everything together petando. So beautiful that you are the only applications that do one thing but make it perfect.

Contacts This is a world in android ...
I always say and I'll say: it is better to use your gmail account and manage your contacts from there. Forget kies, is useless, I have never used.
Maybe it's better to start from scratch, pass your hand gmail contacts you and automatically synchronized on mobile. After you join them in different accounts and ready.

That was going to do, but it touches me a little noses is that now, without knowing how, just by having connected the mobile to Kies to update the newly purchased phone, has filled my address book records now will not let me edited or deleted. It is not simply a matter of organization, I can not remove or change them. I can add new and edit, but he happened to me, no. There remain bugging me and I have to eat or at most "hide". That is, not erased, but gives me the option to hide them, but not say where or how to see them or anything.
 
As for me, of course I erased everything and started everything from scratch, as you said, putting them in gmail and then synchronize. It is a currazo noses, but I can not think of anything else. That was my idea, but now I see that I will have a lot of contacts "ghost" hovering over my phone without being able to do anything with them ...
 
What I have clear is that these android contacts can not trust me. They merely do strange things, like what I said yesterday that I updated the contact facebook and I were all alone today and see some. But what is this! If the address book of my nokia 6100, the year in which the Catholic kings went to school, was a thousand times more reliable than this!

I think I solved the mystery experimenting half (now I have two more gray hairs). It turns out that the contacts would not let me edit or delete were two Yahoo! Mail accounts that were imported and automatically updated.
 
What I did was say no more and I will update those contacts disappeared. I had already tried before, leaving only those in gmail, but the good thing is that now operate. So leave without updating yahoo contacts on the phone, I export them as CSV from yahoo accounts and then imported into gmail. So far, so okay .... BUT .... now I see that some of the contacts I imported into Gmail, which were duplicates with import and Gmail- -from erased (their duplicates), still appear in the mobile- more I give to upgrade. Up Nor let me delete duplicate those that no longer exist in gmail and other on the phone.
 
Disbelief. So maybe I have to restart the phone or connect with the phone gps aligned at 35 degrees north, while the Moon 3D tells me that we waning for synchronization to complete successfully. I propose the creation of a Contact Management Master Android. Master who can open a consultation with ENT, criminal lawyers and experts in shiatsu version 3.0

The same that you already know and do not bring anything, but to clear the entire agenda SGS2, touch the button on the left, select delete and there and lets you select one, several or all the contacts and leave the empty agenda. But beware, because to me it synchronized with me and erase me GMAIL contacts there, luckily I did before exportation and saved on the PC. I am new to Android, and Symbian coming from simple, and that the contact is quite complex as synchronizing multiple accounts, a very funny chicken is mounted on the agenda ... I now walk with the nonsense about the name contact prioritize whatever it comes from Gmail and not of MSN, but by joining contacts, always prioritizes Msn

The truth is that it's a story very carefully. I have already organized means, but I sweated blood.
 
You commit me he had discovered. My problem is I did not let me delete them. It is even now if, for example, tell me you do not see any contact or gmail or anyone, I keep coming as 6 and those can not or deleted. The most that I can is to partner with others and thus not bother me much. Maybe one day ...

Let's see if I can throw some light on the subject ...
 
In these days of rookie androidiano tinkering with the agenda, inadvertently carrying me several times and messenger contacts list gmail ...: (((: ... I think maybe I can understand what you mean 
 
I've noticed that there are editable contacts that come from your SIM, your agenda Gmail, Outlook, etc., etc., however, there are other times that you want to delete a contact says "You can not delete contacts accounts read-only. You can only hide. " These contacts correspond to the programs added as WhatsApp, Facebook, as to synchronize, they detect if your contact has the application and if so, is added as Unknown (green box with white pawn) in the case of WhatsApp or Facebook (blue box with white F) for FaceBook ...
 
If on the other hand you try to edit them, you say in the case of WhatsApp "Unable to edit SNS contacts on the phone" and this is because they are read-only records.
Indeed if you try to delete them tells you that stay hidden rather than deleted, but if you uninstall the program, I guess disappear, or whether the reference is reassigned WhatsApp again, it becomes visible and read-only.
 
Therefore, I do not think it is worrying that remain in limbo and I think we can stay calm and to know which reference these messages. ¿No ??

Now that you speak of ... you know how to delete contacts from the call log the activities of a particular contact rather than go deleting them one by one?
 
thanks
 
See if this serves you ... Button 'Contacts' >> Tab 'Register' >> Then you punchas in a particular person and you get or the string of calls made / received / etc., Sms sent / received and other> > button 'Menu' >> Remove >> Pinchas up "Select All" and when you give you erase delete the entire list at once.
 
Look here, for some reason unknown to me, I have noticed that for some of my contacts keeps me everything (calls, sms, multimedia) in the same list, while for others makes me a list to just call, just sms only sms multimedia ... If this is the case of those who want to delete, then you repeat the process once for each type of communication.
 
So if I have 25 calls between made by me, received and missed along, for example, 14 days and a half, say, Philemon Pi, the following steps delete all at once. It is not on record any call from the person. Then, if you want you do the same with sms registration or ready multimedia messages. Now, if it's all in the same -called and sms- search as easy: just do it once. Is that what you needed?

That's the conclusion I've come too after making a thousand and one evidence. However, there are still things I do not understand: as I said above, if "display options" disable phone contacts from gmail, facebook, ALL of whassap ... of even a few contacts I keep coming on the list: some of facebook (from among the many that I have only one), some mail (few) and one that I think does not exist anymore because I have changed in gmail. That's what I can not find any explanation. Where do they keep those contacts ?? Some are displayed to facebook and facebook with her picture and all !! And what about the rest of facebook? Why some and not others? And of those few who leave or yes and that will not let me edit or delete or anything between them have nothing in common. Not all belong to any single application.
 
 
Therefore, I do not think it is worrying that remain in limbo and I think we can stay calm and to know which reference these messages. ¿No ??
 
For me this is an unfathomable mystery ... maybe a 'bug'? A "lock" that gave with so much change / update? I do not know. So that specific applications are blocked as "read only" to his contacts, I can understand, but I think it gives more problems than benefits, but the other did not understand and I also quite annoyed, because it does not rely on my book contacts. Have contacts around swarming "uncontrolled", appearing magically and without being edited ... For example, I have to compare facebook, gmail, WhatsApp and others to see if they are all that should not lack me anyone? Are they after tomorrow? Do I have to have people with outdated data profiles associated with other current contacts 'forever and ever'?

I have been the same, but with a touch that is important to me. I have hidden and not as heck I can re-watch it, I'm a mess, I have three hours turning and can not find a damn option that says "Show hidden contacts". Someone who does not shed light on this mystery.
