    I do not use use outlook or the Mac's address book.
    So I have installed funambol to get my Contact from my repository (ScheduleWorld). It worked :) , until I sc..ed up and duplicated all my addresses.
    Now I have around 800 contacts to delete :eek:.
    Is there a way do do that quickly, even from the command line/ssh , as I do not look forward to deleting them one by one.

    If you have no contacts on your Mac's address book, you could force a sync between the Touch and your Mac, which would erase all of the contacts on the Touch.

    Good thinking!

    Most of the times the opposite happens : my windows address book ends up filled with my ipod contacts :confused:

    It took a few attemps, and eventually all the contacts on my iPosd were deleted. :D

    Thanks for the tip.

    Sounds interesting.

    What else do you think I'll loose in terms of settings ?
