    Hi to all, new to forum and new iphone user here!

    How do i delete all contacts in iphone?

    Salesman synced contacts at store from my palm wm.treo, then when i snynced to computer i must of checked wrong thing because i added duplicate numbers for each contact. So im guessing i want to start over just not sure how?

    Is there a way to get my contacts to show in groups like i have organized
    in outlook? Family, business, etc. Ive got an awfull lot of numbers in there!

    Thank You

    I am sorry I never saw the second question. Go to setting>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>And do you have a exchange setup?

    you have two options

    if they're sync'd over the air you delete the sync source, i.e. undo the checkbox

    if it's a local sync to the desktop you have to delete them 1 by 1. if you setup the phone as a new phone you had to of sync'd them back for them to reappear.
