    Ok, so...all my contacts are syncing from Google. All is fine.

    I wanted to bring a business card in as a contact, so I took a picture of it via Google Goggles, made sure all the info looked good, and saved it as a contact. I guess I didn't say to save it to Google, since it never showed up on my Google account online.

    When I search for the contact, it says it's a "phone" contact. It doesn't give me an option to delete it. If I scroll alphabetically to find the contact, it doesn't show up at all (first or last name). If I look to hide all my Google Contacts, it doesn't show, nor are there any contacts saved to the phone.

    How the heck do I get this contact off my phone?? This one has me puzzled.

    I'm having the exact same issue. It seems that goggles is saving the contact to the "phone" contacts. it doesn't show up in my gmail contacts and the only way to find it is to search contacts but like you said you cannot delete or move to gmail contacts. doesn't make sense

    To fix it, I usually just log into gmail from a desktop/laptop. Go to contacts, select Other Contacts, select the contacts in question, then click the Add To My Contacts button.

    Having the same problem as well. Can't find a way to delete the contact that was scanned via Google Goggles. Logged into my Gmail account and looked for other contacts, but it isn't there. Uninstalled Goggles and the contact is still there. One other thing that I noticed is that the contact is listed and then under the name it shows "HTC weather sync provider". My other contacts show Google or Exchange, so I'm assuming this might be part of the issue.

    Sounds good to me. Exactly....

    If it works for you, give thanks to the above poster.

    I went to the market and downloaded Contact Remover from HolyHog Software and I was able to use it to remove the contacts I added with Goggles.

    Thanks for the tip. HolyHog did not work but Easy Contacts Delete did the job on my HTC M9.

    Contact remover helped me to delete contact,
    but this is a flaw in Andriod which has to be fixed

    Is the Contact still in "Circles" or someplace else?
