    Hi there

    Can someone help me?

    I have accidentally synced 7000 contacts to my iPhone. I would like to erase them from my iPhone, so i can have just my phone numbers, or at least filter my address book on my Macbook from where they were synced.

    Is this possible?

    Add a group in your Address book.

    Put numbers you want in the group.

    Sync only that group.

    i've never tried it but would restoring from an older backup (before you sync'd the 7000 contacts) work?

    Do you expect your phone to just magically know which contacts you want?

    If you create a group within iTunes and tell it to sync only that group it will remove all the rest from your phone.
