Want to add or remove all of the contacts from an account that you already set up? Just turn Contacts on or off for that account:. If you set up multiple accounts in the Contacts app, you can choose a default account to add new contacts to. You can choose how to sort your contacts, like alphabetically by first or last name. When you delete a contact, it permanently deletes it from your device.
