    I have an old Galaxy Tab 4 and newer Galaxy Tab A. Several weeks ago when writing an email to the 2 people I email the most, their names didn't come up immediately as usual. And this is still going on. Writing the full name brings up everyone BUT my friends and I have to practically type the entire email address (which is a pain) before they come up.

    At the same time, while trying to find my friends, I'm seeing entries that I don't even recognize. One was even a canned response I made years ago on my computer.

    When I go into contacts and cull through them, I can't find these weird contacts. I've deleted hundreds of contacts and yet there seem to be many contacts that I have no way to find and delete.

    EDIT: I am going through each of my several email addresses on my computer and deleting more and more addresses. Discovered hundreds that were not in my "Contacts" but listed as "Other Contacts." I also set up Gmail to not automatically add contacts.

    It helped me get back my top contacts when I try to send an email on my tablet/phone. HOWEVER there are still some random names in there that I can't seem to delete and don't know where they come from. I still have a couple email addresses to go, so perhaps they're from those--but I doubt it on a few of them.

    Okay, I've been deleting contacts all day and night. But still when I start to type in the first letter of a friend's name, yes, his name will come up first, but if I scroll down the choices, there are a lot I've never heard of and don't know how to delete. Where are these addresses lurking? Going through Contacts on the Tab4, none of the oddball addresses come up.

    And I didn't realize that if one contact is saved in 3 of my separate email addresses then I'll get 3 listing for them. Thinking of removing a few addresses from my tablets and only using them on my computer.

    Last night I deleted all but two email accounts on my tablets--and those 2 accounts do not have many contacts at all. (One has about 90, the other perhaps 25.) Yet STILL when I start to type a name in the "To" field, I get a list of names that includes people I don't know. Wish there were some way to delete them while I'm seeing them but I've found no way.

    I know I should probably just let it go, but it's really bugging me.

    So here we go again for my answering my own questions. Kinda feel like I'm just talking to myself here.

    I finally deleted all the email accounts from my tablets and then had kind of a hairy time trying to figure out how to reinstall them. Guess I did it all right because my Gmail accounts are there and...drum roll, please...NO ODD CONTACTS COME UP ANYMORE! Hooray!

    Thanks for your help, everyone.

    I'm not sure but I think some of those predictions come from addresses inside of emails sent to you that were sent to multiple recipients.
