    Hi, first post. Good to join the android world.

    I want to erase all the contacts on my phone so I can resync from Gmail. My new phone is the HTC Incredible which I got last week, and the old phone was a Blackberry Pearl which also sync'd contacts to Gmail. Problem is I started doing all the linking on the phone, then I realized Gmail had the ability to merge contacts... now I have a mess and I want to delete all my contacts and resync with gmail. I even backed them up onto the SD card in case of an issue.

    Anyone know how I can erase all my contacts without resetting the whole phone?

    Hi Sunthas,

    There is an app in the Market called 'Remove Contacts' which I think will let you do that.

    Android / Google - sync all email/contacts by default. Nice....
    Anyway, log into your gmail account.
    Export all your contacts.
    Delete your contacts.
    On Phone: settings \ Accounts & Sync
    Google
    Uncheck "Sync Contacts"
    Press "Sync Now" button

    Once all contacts are removed from phone, uncheck "Sync Contacts"

    Back to gmail
    Import Contacts

    Done.

    Lame lame lame.
