Welcome to the Forum.
When asking for assistance, it's helpful to advise which version of the OS you're running -- it can make a difference in the options available to you. Go to Settings > About > OS. You'll see 10.0.0.xxxx or 10.1.0.xxxx.
Are your contacts stored on the device, or are they synced from an email account such as Gmail or Outlook.com. Are they from a social account such as Twitter or Facebook? For most accounts where contacts are synced to your device, you can to to Settings > Accounts and select one. Scroll down, and you should have an option "Sync Contacts". Turn that off, and the contacts for that account will be deleted. This takes a few minutes.
If the contacts are stored locally, go to Accounts and tap the overflow menu button (3 vertical dots at the bottom right of the page). Tap "Clear Local Contacts".
If you wish to select multiple contacts to delete in a batch, tap and hold one contact. From the menu that appears from the right, tap the box with a checkmark ("select more") and then return to the list and tap all the contacts you wish to delete. Then, tap the trash symbol, and they'll be deleted.
Hope one of these helps.

I have a Z10 with contacts being synced from my Hotmail account. Recently they started duplicating, I ended up with 58,486 contacts! I then deleted the Hotmail account on the BB, but the contacts did not disappear. My OS is version 10.3.2.2252. How do I get rid of these contacts?
