    Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone knows how I can delete all the contacts in my phone book without wiping the whole handheld. I just wanna delete all the contacts without having to do it one by one.

    Through Desktop Manager you can clear the whole database.

    It won't read it. It won't sync.

    Open Contacts app, Hit Menu Key, Choose Options and then while at the main options menu for contacts type either RSET or WIPE and it should delete all the contacts on your phone. It won't appear on the screen that you are typing anything but it should respond once you enter the last letter of RSET or WIPE. Note: This also works for the calendar, by doing the same thing but in the Calendar app.

    flirtaciousboi, i know you posted this 2 years ago so hopefully it's been resolved for you by now.

    On my 9780, I followed the RSET instructions above, deleted all my calendars (had my gmail calendar there twice!), then re-synced my device through DM using Outlook 2010 and it worked fine.

    Hey this worked great to delete all my contacts. One problem, when I restored my contacts it put them in 'unknown'. I used bb protect to restore. What do I have to do to put them in the 'default' contact list?

    OS 5: Options > Advanced Options > Security Wipe. Check off Contacts, then proceed. That's about all. There are other methods too. OS 6: Options, type in Security Wipe, select it, check off contacts, proceed.

    I ended up backing up contacts to my PC, then wiped contacts on my phone. Then restored from computer. Had no contacts so it created the default list.

    Dumb question. This works fine for phones with a keyboard but what about on an all touch device? I need to do this for my Curve 9380. Thanks.

    Thanks for sharing this question. I have a great solution of this. Add a new app into your mobile that is multiple contacts delete. This is available for all blackberry mobile models. Its very helpful application. So install it in your mobile free and paid.
