    is there a way to delete all contacts?

    Hello Forum - I need to delete all of my contacts in my Atrix. I am trying to find options (but can't do a full reset or use gmail - Gmail only has 50 of my 5000 contacts).

    Thank you in advance for any ideas! Hank

    I'm assuming you have them all backed up?

    If not you may try exporting them within Contacts settings to vcf, which you can then import to Gmail later after you've made the wipe.

    If you already have them backed up, you can try downloading Go Contacts from the Market. It has a Batch Delete function in the Menu that will allow you to select all and then delete. I'm only assuming it's a perma-delete from your phone, but I'm sorry, I'm not willing to test it out.

    Good luck!

    You can alway go to Contacts/menu/display options and check "only contacts with phones". That way only the contacts who have a phone will be on display.

    Thank you for the ideas. I ended up downloading an app to delete all of the contacts. It was called Contact Remover.
