    Hi all

    I'm a newbie, so please be gentle. I have no doubt that there is a very obvious solution to this problem, but I just can't figure it out. :confused:

    When I synched my Hero with my google account, it imported all the contact associated with that account. I actually don't use gmail as my primary email but as a secondary work/spam type account, so obviously I have a lot of addresses and contacts saved in there that I never use. These are now all clogging up my contacts list on the Hero.

    Firstly, I can't seem to actually delete a contact. How the heck do you do this? Clicking on them seems only to bring up 'call' and 'text' options. I have quite a lot I want to delete, so this is a problem.

    Secondly, if I do at a later stage want to associate my phone with a different gmail address - perhaps a new one I've set up specifically for use with the phone then how easy will this be? Will I have to do a 'factory reset' to synch it with the new account, or is there a 'switch user' option or similar?

    many thanks - this is a total pain!

    Ok, so first of all if you don't want to see Google Contacts in your People app you should do this:

    go to People > press Menu(physical button) > View > and uncheck Google

    And secondly you don't need to do a factory reset to change google account.

    Oh thank you - what a quick and helpful response! I did do a search for this topic, but it didn't come up with that one...

    Seems to have worked. Hurrah!
