    Hi,

    Is it possible to remove a contact from my WhatsApp contacts but not from my address book?

    How do you do this? This was pretty easy on my bb10 device.

    Some of my contacts don't use whatsapp and I have others like my home phone number that I would like to get rid of as well.

    Thanks.

    It weird that ur home number comes up, typically it only shows contacts that actually have the application. As far as deleting from what's app and not from ur contact book I'm not sure. U could always block them though!

    Did you remove the whatsapp contact only?

    I tried unlinking, but still can't remove from whatsapp.

    I have been blocking as an alternative. But thought all platforms had the same functionality.

    Very strange. I've just unlinked a WhatsApp contact and then when I went in to delete it it said it was read only and could only hide it. This is not what happened before. Dunno if this is anything to do with the others no longer being on WhatsApp.

    Don't think this is possible on Android. For such a simple task.

    I emailed whatsapp on this, let's see what happens.
