Hello!
I have a recurrent problem with Sense, it's saving ''unnamed'' contacts in my phonebook without asking me, now I have about 3000 unnamed contacts in my phonebook!!!
I can delete them one by one but it will take hours.
I tried to put ''unnamed'' in the contacts search to delete them all together but Sense won't see them as they don't have a name!
Any tip?
Also why and from where Sense is saving these contacts??

Probably from google
Make sure that they aren't saved on google
If yes you have to delete them there as well

I have found a good way to delete them quickly.
I went to Google Gmail then Contacts and deleted the unnamed contacts by bunch of 250 (select all by page).
Then export to Vcf file, copy/paste it in the One internal storage,deleted all the 5350 contacts in the phone, finally import the Vcf made by gmail and voila!
Only 750 contacts are here
