    Hi to you all and best wishes for 2013
    Can anyone advise how to bulk delete contacts on an iPad. I need to clean our the whole lot and start again.

    Thanks KJ

    I have successfully used the app "ContactDel" ($1.99, USD, from the App Store). You can use it to delete some or all of your contacts at one go. There may be others, but this is what I know.

    Maybe it's a start?

    If you are syncing with iCloud, you can go to icloud.com on a computer. Open the Contacts app on the site. Using the gear icon at the bottom; select all, then Delete.

    Though you might want to select all, then export first, just in case it turns out there was something you didn't want to delete after all.

    Thanks; there seems to be an App for everything; just need to get mind round to that way of thinking.

    Thanks; I have just started to investigate the benefits of iCloud and this seems to be one of them.
