    You can select which contacts you want to display in your phonebook. You can select an option which only displays contacts with a phone number.

    Click "People" then press "Menu" and select "View". You can then check the boxes I was referring to above.

    Hopefully this will work for you.

    Sorry it didn't help, mate.

    The only other thing I can think of is manually deleting the e-mail contacts from the phone itself or from your contacts on Googlemail/GMail.

    No worries, mate. I'm just sorry I couldn't help more and that the "only show contacts with a phone number" didn't work.

    How long has it been, mate? Sometimes it does take a little while before it all matches up.

    Hmm this bugs me as well, as it lists everyone including email and Facebook contacts even though they're not selected for the phone book view. Fortunately now my text threads are established to my regular contacts, I just use them.
