    I have a situation that has me a little confused. I have come up with a couple ideas but am sure that you fine people can resolve my issue more efficiently.

    I have an iMac, Macbook Pro and iPhone all updated using MobileMe. I was Jailbreaking my friends iPhone yesterday and somehow his contacts were synced to my system. I now have 250+ contacts that I do not want on all 3 machines now. Was is the best way to remove these. As an additional complication I have 1300+ contacts of my own, so deleting 1 at a time is not my favourite option.

    Any ideas? And Thanks for reading.

    this is kind of a shot in the dark but try going to Library/Caches/com.apple.addressbook/MetaData and the sort them by date added... then delete the ones that were recently added... once again this is a shot in the dark

    I found a better way. go into address book. create a new smart group and make the specifications "Card -> Has Changed in -> (number) -> (days weeks whatever works best.. this is if you know when they were added.) it will make a group with these contacts so then you can isolate them from the others and delete them.
