    It's actually a bit buggy, I think the data is stored in a bit of a non-standard way.

    From my phone, I was unable to remove it because it locked up the Phone app when I clicked on it. Fortunately, I sync with MobileMe, so I just removed it from the web interface at

    So basically you may be forced to remove it another way (ie, from the computer you sync the phone with)


    I should add this was on both AT&T and Verizon iPhones, both jailbroken and stock.

    Dark side of the monitor
    And in the future, the dropbox option is the way to go. Its a ltttle more setup but way better in the end.
