How do I delete contacts on my Motorola Moto G?

I would like to delete contacts from my Moto G phone that I brought just after Christmas 2013. When I follow the instructions
(Home menu > People > Contacts > Settings).
When I go to the settings the only things that appear on the list are Contacts to display; Import/export; Accounts; and Settings. What do I do?

I went into the contact as if i was about to phone them but instead of tapping twice, to phone them, there is a pencil icon at he top there is a pencil icon tap on it and the screen changes to show a bin where the pencil was. Just thought this would help. Not sure about deleting multiple contacts at the same time.

In my moto 2xg when I touched the screen suddenly out going international calls ringing and interepting

Please don't freak out. follow the steps and you are good to go.

1) Open contacts app.
2) click on 3 dots appearing on top right of the screen.
3) Select delete option.
4) Select your contacts you want to delete, if you want to delete all then again click on 3 dots appearing on top right of the screen and check the check box.
5) Click on ✓ and you are all done.

If you want to delete or edit your contacts from your google account. Simply go to and sign in with your account and all actions that can be performed are given. You can modify them just like emails.

Cheers. :)

how to deleit multipul contacts pls answer me

I tried and this worked... there is no delete option so you have chose the contact you want to delete and then go to edit. There you just have to erase both the name and the contact number. After these erase press ok, which is the o sign at the bottom of the phone. Now the in the contacts the no. which you just deleted will be blank so Later you can add another contact no..

Guys just log in to with the Google account saved on your device and manage all the contacts as you wish. Then don't forget to sync contacts on your mobile when you are done with the changes.

Guys, Motorola doesn't have any option to remove multiple contacts. Please verify any third party services from google play store to remove multiple contacts.
I suffered same with Moto G2.
