Thanks for your step by step instructions on how to delete a contact from What's App. Since it means deleting a phone contact as well, how can I put my phone contact back in without W A using it?
I would like to have only some of my contacts included in my W A list but not all.

This leads to another question; how can I prevent W A from putting an automatic invitation to my other contacts without deleting them?
I hope you have found these solutions, Thanks Jan.

When you open your whatsapp then just go to settings and find the refresh option. Just refresh it once in the availability of Internet. And you are good to go.

On the Contact Info screen, select Menu > View in address book
Press Delete (button in the shape of a trash can) > OK.
To double-check that the contact has, in fact, been removed, go to Contacts > Menu > Refresh
To delete your chat history with this person, go to the Chats tab, press and hold their name for a couple of seconds, and select Delete chat
