Deleting Your Contacts in iPhone

Deleting Your Contacts in iPhone

My contacts had become bloated with syncing between iPhone and Outlook so it was time for radical action.  I found no way to delete contacts from within iPhone. I did find ways to use Windows Address Book or Yahoo email but they seemed more convoluted so  how I did it.

  1. Export contacts from outlook to a dos csv format
  2. Check contents of export file
  3. Delete all contacts in outlook
  4. Sync iPhone again and choose to overwrite the contacts with the (now empty) Outlook
  5. Import contacts back into Outlook from the csv file (after cleaning up any duplicates and errors)
