Default how to delete read-only contacts

I have a new N5 where contacts were transferred by Sprint from a dumb phone. The contact/number is there but there are some I want to delete but I get an error saying it is read-only.

Two questions:
1. where are these contacts stored?
2. how can I delete them?

Log into Gmail on a computer,go into contacts tab, delete it from there. Or just Google "Google contacts" and sign in into the first link. You need a computer for it.

Then come back and resync on your phone.
