    I had to factory reset my phone. Since then, when I start typing the number of one of my contacts the list of telephone numbers for each contact is on the list twice. Upon further investigation, it seems that every contact is now saved to my device instead of just being saved to my gmail account. I know that I can go in and unlink the contact and then delete the copy of the information saved to my device, but I have 700+ contacts, that would take a year to do that individually. Any advice on how to delete the contacts that are saved to my device?
