A pickle indeed, data sanitizing is no fun and you have a doozy. If you have access to his iCloud account you can go into contacts, select all of them and click on the gear icon to export them. I do believe that Apple only lets you export as a vCard. I do believe there are a number of utilities that convert vcards to another format, some of them online. ...

Your iCloud account was probably something you created when you bought the phone or updated.

My issue was Exchange syncing contacts. I got the clue from the answer above. There is an option under groups to remove the tick from Suggested Contacts. This reduced my contacts to just those with phone numbers that I had added.

That means that contact has been designated for Siri to use when she needs personal information about you. For example, if you have a contact created with your home address you can then ask Siri for "directions to home". She will look up the home address attached to the "me" contact. You can change which contact the "me" is attached to by going to ...

The blue number (the bottom one in your screen capture) is the one which made the call. The same works for emails in contacts that have more than one. Here for example, I have a contact with a landline (home) and a mobile phone. Incoming and outgoing calls to the different numbers of the contact are highlighted in blue. This is a screenshot of a call made ...

Really simple: In Contacts select all contacts you want to export or press CMD-A. Press CMD-C (copy to clipboard). Open a new, empty Numbers document. Delete any existing table in that document.

You can try to see if your phone had saved a backup to your computer upon last sync. This would mean restoring the phone from backup, which isn't always ideal depending on the situation. Unfortunately, it's not easy because iCloud was likely left enabled on the old phone, which synced them up to the cloud, and then down to your phone. Else, here is a ...

You can also configure iCloud on your Mac to sync your contacts. Go to Preferences > Internet Accounts > iCloud and check Contacts. That will restore them to your Mac and keep them in sync with your iOS devices (iPhone in this case), so if you add, delete, or change a contact in any of your devices it will reflect on the rest.

You might have to force iOS to refresh your contacts. Goto your iPhone's Settings and select Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Select Gmail and uncheck Contacts. Now, goto your Contacts app and it should be empty. Go back to the previous settings screen and recheck Contacts. After that, open up your Contacts app to verify the updates.

Jaime Santa Cruz's answer should work perfectly. I just want to add that if you did all that but still see unwanted contacts, you may have to force iOS to refresh the Contacts. To do so, goto your iPhone's Settings and select Mail , Contacts, Calendars. Select Gmail, uncheck Contacts and then recheck Contacts. When you go back to the Contacts app, it ...

The IFTTT recipe gets information from a specific source (channel) that is defined in the recipe. In this case I assume that you use a recipe which imports contacts to a spreadsheet on Google Drive and then it only imports contacts from the contacts application (the built-in one). From what I am aware of there isn't any application currently that offers ...

Can you add the wrong account anyway and then use Mail's connection doctor to inspect the traffic and then determine what error you have specifically? Unless there's a console log listing the error, you're going to have a hard time knowing which error is happening when.
