I've been having the same problem as everyone else however I've worked it out.

Click on:
Contacts > Connections

Don't even bother looking in the list of people/pics that shows up or trying to find a 'more' button.

On the right hand side of the screen, below the search bar, there should be 2 links, one says 'Remove Connections', click on it.

Select the person(s) you want to remove from the list and then click the blue button saying 'Remove Connections'. It will ask if you are sure, click 'Yes, Remove Them'.

You will then get a confirmation that you have successfully removed someone.

I hope this helps.

*Edit*
Here is a screen capture of what steps I took. https://www.box.com/s/iuic5cw85c6w9exzbo2z

    This is the way it worked for me when I had the old format. It no longer does and hose of us with the new format ate consigned to the MORE choice after going to a contact.

    Thanks Leigh, your advice worked for me. I couldn't figure out the other suggestions to remove connections. Thanks again!

    This worked for me as well! I'm on a Mac, however, so the search bar is on the left, and the "Remove Connections" link is on the right, where, of course, I wasn't looking, so occupied was I with searching for the function in the actual list of connections. Thanks, Leigh!

      You people don't get it. I am having the same issue that David is. There is no "more" option anywhere no matter where you are. Maybe you have it but we don't!

        THANK YOU! This is my issue as well. No 'more' anywhere.

        CONTACTS

        Above right REMOVE CONNECTIONS...

        the old way, may still be your format way.

        Your welcome. I have worked in IT for 15 years and I suspect there is something different about our profile in the data of the database. If I am correct the chances of some IT person going in and specifically changing our profile data to correct the problem would be remote considering this is probably only happening to a very low percentage of the users.
        Margaret A Ost May 29 '13 at 08:16 PM
        There are a variety of formats people have. Unless LinkedIn looks at your profile and data, as you suggest all any other user can do is offer a guess.
        Sean DeYoung May 29 '13 at 08:18 PM
        Okay what Margaret stated worked. Thanks Margaret!

        LinkedIn members with very large 1st level networks have problems with many LinkedIn features.

        You should send a message to LinkedIn Customer Service through the "Contact Us" link found at the top of every LinkedIn Help Forum webpage. Bear in mind it now takes LinkedIn Customer Service staffers at least 7-10 days to get to and process a service ticket, and all service tickets are handled on a strict FIFO basis regardless of where the source of the service ticket.

          I reported this issue over a year ago.
          I will report it again today.
          People with a large number of connections cannot delete connections and LinkedIn appears not to care.

            Has your format changed? Mine has twice in past month so there is a new way to do it.
            Margaret A Ost May 30 '13 at 11:26 AM
            There is another way to REMOVE CONNECTION:

            Go to PROFILE of person.
            Next to SEND MESSAGE click arrow.
            REMOVE CONNECTION is once choice in drop down menu.

            It's the "more" option that appears in the contact's area when you hover over their name (next to "tag" and "message"). Not the "more" that is in the upper toolbar (next to "news"). Super confusing, I know.

              I see nothing when I hover over the name. What browser are you using. I tried Firefox and IE and it does not work.

                Thanks Margaret. Unfortunately no MORE button shows up for me. Tried Firefox, IE and Chrome. Very strange. Sucks they make this so impossible.

                What happens in CONTACTS when you go to the person you want to delete?

                What happens in CONTACTS when you go to the person you want to delete, then click on their name? That is when MORE shows, and you have to click on it to see REMOVE CONNECTION.

                If you don't have new toolbar, you have to choose person and click REMOVE CONNECTION in upper right of screen.
                David Schofman May 25 '13 at 03:56 PM
                I guess I have the older version. If you have any suggestions on where get the new toolbar maybe that will work. To answer you question, when I search, then select the only thing that appears is "Send Message" and "Edit Tags" - when I try your second suggestion of selecting and then going to the upper right and clicking REMOVE CONNECTION I get this error: "There was an unexpected problem that prevented us from completing your request."

                This discussion seems to indicate that some LinkedIn users have a new user interface that allows deletion of connections (even for those who cannot delete connections now). How does want obtain the new user interface with these updated features?
                I would like to be able to delete connections through LinkedIn.

                  When you open a CONTACT does it look different? If you see MORE while you are in the CONTACT name, then you have tge new format.

                  If you see MORE, click on it and you will see REMOVE.

                  When you go to your connections page, there is a new format. There is large tab at the top of the connections list which has many features, one of them is the remove connections feature. Its great, you can multi selection names from your list!! hit remove and wola!! =)
                  just used it myself
