REALLY NEED A WAY TO DELETE.....

You can, it's just REALLY not obvious:

* Go to your Friends list
* Tap on the arrow on the right for friend you wish to remove - this shows their details
* Tap on the Profile button
* Now tap on the PLUS sign that is in the bottom right corner of the box that has their name. Completely counter-intuative, but that's what you click on
* Now tap on the Remove Friend button

Enjoy!

    Yeah I finally did that. Sooooo much easier to delete friends using the Origin software on PC. I only wish adding people on there worked.

    I have one, just don't feel like firing it up. And I have a full blown gaming PC - I guess I could load it on there. I just only really deal with EA stuff on my iOS devices so I tend to not think about it when I'm in front of the computer.

    I know, first world problems....

    These people are NOT showing up in the My Friends section......they are still in my neighbours and therefore taking up space since they are still being recognised as friends

    That's a new one. I dunno - download the origin client then, maybe they show up there? If not, then it looks like your device data is out of sync with the servers - you may have to delete the app and re-install it (no real danger in doing so, just visit your friends page in the game to force a sync of your iOS device to the Origin servers).

    I'd delete the app, reboot my iOS device, reinstall the app but before logging in reboot it again (just to be paranoid) and then log in and see if that does it.

    Good luck!

    Apps been deleted and reinstalled loads still cant get rid of the odd few and downloaded the app and they don't show up in there either :( dunno what that's about.... did find that one of the people i wanted to remove didn't have a remove button on the friends profile so used block instead and that worked to remove them but as for the illusive neighbour that isnt in my friends....

    If you add them as a friend, can you then delete or block them from the "pending friends" list? Might be worth a try...
