IPhone :: Mass Deleting Of Contacts?
Is there a way to mass delete your contacts list? I synced my phone and forgot to un-check the box and it synced my Yahoo contacts.

BB Bold 9700 :: Mass Deleting Text. Or Not?
so I've tried finding this in the manual and have tried searching the threads, and haven't found my answer. Upon first getting used to the keys on my 9700, I would accidentally delete all the text I had just type in my SMS texts. I could have been pressing multiple buttons due to my bulky bodyglove that I have on it, but I've tried everything: pressing Delete twice really fast, holding the Delete key down, pressing the Delete key down while pressing the surrounding keys down...everything. Now that I want the whole field cleared, I can't figure out how it did it when I didn't intend to do it initially.Anyone know what to do, aside from going to the Menu and pressing Clear Field? I was only "backspacing" at the time I was fixing character typos, and somehow it managed to delete the whole field.

IPhone :: Deleting All Contacts In One Go?
How can I delete ALL my contacts from my IPhone (accidentally loaded from SIM card) in one go, without deleting individually? (There are 250 contacts.)
My old Nokia phone enabled me to mark contacts for deletion individually or ALL. Surely an IPhone is at least this smart.

IPhone :: Deleting All Contacts And Favorites?
When I plugged my new IPhone into my PC to recharge the battery, it synced all my favorites and contacts over to my IPhone. However, my PC's Outlook has too many contacts with no phone number and I have way too many business favorites that require a long hunt to get to the right ones on the IPhone. I want to create IPhone favorites and contacts manually. How do I:
1. Delete all IPhone favorites and contacts?
2. Instruct iTunes never to sync my IPhone and allow me to simply recharge my battery?

IPhone :: Deleting All Contacts From A Group
I synced my new IPhone with my imac 10.6. From the imac the whole address book, contacts, grouped contacts were downloaded to the IPhone. There must be/have been a default command somewhere. Question: How do I delete the group name from the phone? The contacts within a group I deleted one by one so that the group is empty, but the group name remains on the phone 'contacts'?

IPhone :: Why IOS4 Deleting My Contacts Again And Again?
Yesterday iOS4 deleted all my contacts. I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and so I re-entered them in manually (the ones I remember anyway). Then, this morning I wake up and they are all gone again! This is rather a big problem so can someone shed some light on it? I even restored the phone to factory default yesterday thinking that a fresh start would fix it. I'm running IPhone 3G.

BB Pearl 8110/20/30 :: Mass SMS To All Of My Contacts?
I'm a new BlackBerry Pearl user. I bought the 8120, and I had to switch providers, and obviously I have a new number now. I was wondering though; Can I send a mass SMS to all of my contacts, saying something like "Hey, this is Kris. This is my new number" or do I have to text everyone individually? I have over 100 contacts, and that would take too long.

IPhone :: Deleting Auto Insert Contacts?
So I have two contacts that no longer exist but they still show up when I'm sending emails if I type the first letter of the email. I need to know how to delete them? I have email setup with a gmail account. My cousin had an old email address which I had in my contacts on the iphone. She got married and closed her email account and setup a new on with her new last name, so I created a new contact and deleted the old one. However whenever I go into mail to compose a message if I type the letter both emails show up even though the old one was deleted from my contacts.
I let me cousin use my phone to send an email to one of his buddies. Now everytime I compose and email and type the first letter of his buddies email I get my contacts but my cousin's friend's email address shows up also. It wasn't saved in my contacts list anywhere. How do I clear this auto list? I tried removing the email and setting it up again, I've tried turning the email off for a day and turning it back on. I've looked at the account online to see if it's holding the contacts but the contacts don't show up there only on the phone.

IPhone :: IOS4 Update Deleting My Contacts
I updated to iOS4 this morning, before doing so created a backup. My contacts are stored locally on the IPhone, I don't use outlook or any external storage methods like google etc. My contacts do not show up, I have tried using an earlier backup also, this did not work either.
The weird thing is, when I initially open the contacts tab after restoring and then go to the favorites tab with about 10 or so contacts, initially it comes up with the names and numbers but about 1 or 2 seconds after opening, the names vanish and leave only the numbers.
What's going on? How do I fix it? I can't afford to lose the 100 odd contacts off my phone, some of which are ones I will never be able to track down again. Failing being able to fix it myself, is there somewhere I can send my laptop which holds the backup restore file (I have a complete restore file from 15th of June), for them to extract the information?

IPhone :: Stop 4s Deleting Contacts When Set Up Email?
I have recently upgraded to the i phone 4S.† I have restored from my back up on my Macbook.† When I put in all my details to set up my e-mail exchange account all the contacts are deleted.† I have tried a few times and ensured that the box's next to contacts calenders and reminders are not checked ( so they don't sync) but it is all still deleted.† It seems I can have either my e-mail working or my contacts installed and that can't be right.†

IPhone :: Deleting Unwanted Autofill Email Contacts
After sending an email, the recipient address is saved to memory so that the next time I start typing that email, it shows up in a list of possible addresses to use. This is of course useful, but there have been some addresses which I've misspelled or just no longer need so I don't want them coming up as the auto suggestion. How do I remove these? Please note these are not addresses in the address book; just incorrect or invalid addresses that were previously used in error.

Motorola Defy :: Mass Delete Contacts From Motoblur
I had recently purchased my first Android device, a Moto Defy+. This is not a carrier locked phone.
I use my gmail contacts as the default address book and when i signed up for Moto blur account, it somehow made a backup of all my gmail contacts on motoblur. Now, i can see the same contact details twice for every address book entry. During the backup process, motoblur deleted the leading zeros from all phone numbers. Even though gmail is my default address book, the phone picks up motoblur stored info while making calls - due to which I am now unable to make long distance calls from my phone unless i manually go and edit/delete the phone numbers from the motoblur section on the address book. needless to say, this is very irritating as i have over a 1000 contacts.
How do i delete all my contacts from the motoblur section? i do not really use the motoblur account for anything and if deleting the motoblur account is a solution, i'll be happy to do that. however, i do not want to do a factory setting restore.
