    Hello,

    On BB10 its possible to clear out the recent contacts list. But on Blackberry Android its impossible! I have thousands of random email addresses in this list and it just keeps growing with every email I receive. It will take a significant amount of time for me to 'block' these contacts, which doesnt fix the problem. It just buries it, and it still leaves thousands of un used random email addresses on my phone.

    I tried clearing the Contacts app data and cache. I even tried disableing it and re-enabling it. I cant find anyway of deleting this list.

    Please fix this. We need a way to clear this list, or at the very least a button to select all the contacts and block them all at once.

    Thank you

    I experimented on my Priv. The only way to remove these contacts from the phone is to clear the data for Hub Services + which has the side effect of removing all your accounts from the hub.

    While on the Hub > 3-dot Menu button (bottom right) > Settings > "Recent Contact Management" (4th option) > "Remove Recent Contacts" button right there.

    Does that App replace the default android phone App? I'm trying to install it from apkmirror but it says an App with the same name is already installed so it aborts.

    Disable the 'telephone' app from settings, apps before you install.

    Thanks for the link. I was able to install both the version you recommend and version 10, but I can't find a setting to clear Frequents like you discribed?

    Thanks

    Ensure that you are on the phone recents screen, then three dots on top right, clear frequents.

    Did you put version 10 on your priv? Which version? (excited, lol)

    Maybe it's a priv v KEYone thing. I don't have my PRIV with me but I'll try it when I can.

    Thx for the help.

    I hope BlackBerry just adds this to their contacts app.
