    Welcome to Android Central! Are you saying that you don't want your contacts from Google and Yahoo to be synced with the phone's Contacts app? If so, go to Settings>Accounts-Google>[your account], select Contacts, and uncheck it. Do the same for Settings>Accounts-Yahoo.

    After unchecking the contact sync as described above, you could then go to the App Manager, select Contacts and Contact Storage, and Clear Cache/Clear Data. Then open Contacts again--the Google and Yahoo contacts should be gone.

    However, be aware that if the contacts that are important to you are only saved to the local Phone account, then do not do this, because clearing the data from Contact Storage will probably wipe out those contacts as well.
