    I have an LG V20 and am on Verizon. I have a contact that when I try to delete it shows "invalid id" and can't be deleted. This particular contact isn't being backed up to Verizon or to Google contacts. How do I get it off my Phone? Thanks

    Have you tried a simple restart of the phone?

    Do you mean the contacts app on your phone, or an email contact?

    I have the same problem. In fact, I have a whole lot of contact where I can't edit them and get "Invalid ID" when trying to delete them.

    There's an app called Contact Remover that will let me delete them but first I have to figure out which ones are broken.

    It keeps my car from downloading my contact list.

    Sadly, Contact Remover seems to have been removed from Google Play store. Now I need to find another one.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are all of your contacts saved to your Google Contacts in the cloud? If so, go to Settings>Apps, tap Menu>Show System, select Contact Storage, then Clear Cache/Clear Data. Now open your Contacts app again and give it a few seconds to re-sync with your Google Contacts in the cloud. Any stray local data should've been cleared out.
