After importing a downloaded vcf file with a single contact via Settings->Apps->People->Import contacts from file a View contact button is shown. It shows the contact details.

The pulley menu contains 4 entries but the Delete entry doesn't work.

You need to pull right and find the just imported contact. If you open the contact details you are back to the same view as above. And this time the pulley menu Delete entry is working.

Edit: Maybe related bug deleting downloaded image.

I have a similar issue. After synching all contacts with my N9, lots of vcf files show up in "Settings->Apps->People->Import contacts from file". How can I remove them? Where can I find them in the file system?

@KRM: You can find the files in ~/Downloads from the shell or using a filemanager app.

But my question was different. The pulley menu Delete entry doesn't work in the contact view after import.

@axaq: ok, I can confirm your point about the "Delete" pulley menu. However my case is more complicated. After synching the contacts with my N9, these vcf file show up in People settings, but they are not in the ./Downloads directory. I don't just find them.

@KRM: How did you synced your contacts? Using Bluetooth? Exporting every contact at the N9 to a files containing single contacts? How did you transfer the files? I exported all my N9 contacts and concatenated all to one all.vcf and scp'ed it to /home/nemo/Downloads/. If you transfered the files via email you should search below ~/Downloads/mail_attachments/<id>/file, see also here.

@axaq: Thanks for the hints. I found the files. I synched the .vcf files via Bluetooth from my N9. I finally found them in the ~/Documents Folder (not Downloads). I don't know, how I could have missed that before.
