Edit/delete contacts restored from a previous phone

My galaxy s7 won't let me modify a contact that was restored from my previous Samsung phone. I can seem to edit out information like other phone numbers for a contact and save them but when I select the contact the numbers are still there. Then, when I go into edit mode, they're not there. I tried a power on reset and that was no help. One other piece of info - in the setting area for Group choices it has "Restored from Samsung -" and the name of my old phone. this radio button is NOT selected and it still says it's part of that group when NOT in edit mode.

Any help appreciated as I don't want to have to re-create all my contacts.

Thanks
