    Only if you delete your contacts.

    I'm not computer or smartphone literate.
    What would be the difference in removing and deleting them. Here is what I want to do. I have contacts+ on my phone and it isn't acting quite right. I thought if I uninstall/remove it and reinstall that it might act right. I was worried about losing my contacts if I do that. What would be another way to protect my contacts, kinda like wearing suspenders and a belt both.

    If you back up your contacts to google, and then wipe the data on your phone, you can sync your phone with google and it will sync your contacts. If you go in and manually delete contacts and then sync your phone with google, that will delete the contacts with google as well. There are applications to backup and sync your contacts available on the play store, which would make a good backup plan. Maybe someone has a suggestion on a good one.

    So if my phone throws craps I don't have to worry about my contacts unless I physically delete tham.

    Thanks very much for the info.

    Anytime. Yep, as long as you have everything backed up with Google, you are good to go. I wipe my phone quite often and restore it through Google every time.
