Default How to delete a .vcf contact received

Please Login to Remove!


I received from one of my messenger contacts via PIN a .vcf contact card which was added into my Contacts Address Book. The problem now is that I can not edit or delete that address! How can I do so?

I think you have to sync with Outlook, delete the contact in Outlook, and then re-sync your address book. I have the same situation. The second I clicked on the .vcf card I was hosed with that contact. Some strange error message crops up when I try to modify it, saying "contact updated externally. changes will be lost..." Man, I HATE this!
