I like a modal window for "interruption" tasks. That is, tasks that are performed when you're really trying to do something else. Signing in is a good example. From any page I can click to sign in, complete the little form, and get back to my current task. Granted, that can be done without a modal (when Sign In is on its own page, submitting can jump you ...
Modals are a popular for a good reason: They provide fast, focused, contextual interaction. Page loads should be saved for when they're really needed to move the flow forward. Another contextual information option is content that loads into the page as needed. I've used this solution for payment forms in particular in the past. This article reminds us of ...
I think your best option is to provide an alert/confirmation when user clicks "Delete". This way, you get an opportunity to provide a warning. It's the same number of click as if you provide "undo" on the popup. It's also easier on development effort.

Yes, modals are usable for simple content on mobile. In fact they are used by Android in the settings when you change an item. In iOS they are much less common, but if you use them in a sane way for very simple dialogues, they are okay.
I think it is would be ok to use modal, but before you do so you could consider these things: modals may be considered as nags - just search Google for "nag screen iPhone" and you will find that most of them are modals. On iPhone most of the modals I can see are "Would you like to rate this app?" - this kind of message does not give much profit for the ...
