    1. Hi Phaceli,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so sorry if the steps I've mentioned above is not works for you. However, can you please tell me what's group you want to remove? Is it default group or created group? FYI, the steps above is only works for created group. The default group can't be deleted from the phone. If you still wants to remove them, try to delete the default group from the PC. Login to you Gmail account, select contacts, you should see delete option under the "more" tab.
      Hope this helps :)
