    Hi guys,

    I need to delete a work email from my phone, as I left that job. I have 300+ contacts that are synced to that email (not by choice), is there a way for me to un-sync them? When I try to turn off "sync contacts" it warns me that it will delete all the contacts.

    Is this a company phone controlled by their IT department.

    Nope, purchased on my own. IT connected my exchange email to the phone and it synched 300+ contacts and I don't want to lose them.

    Connect your phone to a computer then export all your contacts to a file then delete the email account import the contacts to a new email account or another existing email account.
