There are more than 1,000 contacts on my iPhone, and I don’t know how to manage them anymore because it is in a mess and it is difficult to find my friend. I think I can delete all of them at once then import the new items to it. But it is too difficult to repeat the same thing over 1,000 times. Is there any easy way to clear all these contacts from iPhone? Thanks!
