Stop Yahoo Contacts on my iPhone


How to stop Yahoo contacts showing up on my iPhone? I have hundreds of Yahoo contacts and I don't want them to show up in the contact list on my iPhone. I just want to read Yahoo emails.



When you setup your Yahoo account on your iPhone, you probably turned on Yahoo Mail, Contacts, Calendar and Notes all together.

If you don't want to see Yahoo contacts coming to your iPhone, you can turn off Yahoo Contacts:

  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  • Tap your Yahoo account.
  • Tap the toggle switch on "Contacts" to the right. You shouldn't see any green on the switch.
  • Tap "Delete from My iPhone" to confirm, when you this confirmation question: "Are you sure you want to continue? All Yahoo contacts will be removed from your iPhone."

You can turn Yahoo Contacts on again, if you need it later.
