How to delete some contacts in TEAMS

Hi,

In the Contacts list of my TEAMS, I got a lot of "fake" contacts without any name : only the phone number.
Where do they come from ?
How to delete these 'Contacts' ?

Thanks for your help

Hello Arjan,
No, I didn't use Teams to dial phone numbers not in my contact list.

Hello Jimmy,
To find these 'ghost' contacts, I clicked on Calls in the left ribbon, and then I click on Contacts. These Contacts don't have any name, only a phone number.

Thanks for your help

Hi,
Contacts in Calls refer to your Contacts present into Outlook, but only the Contact with a telephone or mobile number in it.

Contacts into Chats are completely different and disjoined from "Call Contacts".

Best.

Are you using teams to dial phonenumbers not in your contact list?
Can you manually remove them in the UI?

Hi RobertL-5516!

Does these "fake" contacts are in your organization?

if you want to remove some contacts, please click Contact tab and find the contact that you want to remove and then click three dots (…) to expand the menu. After that please select " Remove from this group". For your reference:
