'De'-synchronising email contacts with phone contacts



I have a Blackberry Pearl 3G

I was wondering if someone might help me to de-synchronise my email contacts from the phone contacts list. 

I had to get a new SIM card and subsequently re-set up my email (Yahoo) with the phone. When it did this it must have asked if I wanted to synchronise the contacts and I stupidly said yes and now I don't know how to get trid of them from the phone contact list.

I would have tried to just delete them all but I don't want them to also delete from my email program ( the phone insists on reconciling the two lists regularly and keeps sending me emails to tell me it is failing to synchronise as I have now turned the feature off).

It may also be worth noting that I have not had a chance to back-up the 'phone' contacts to the SIM. 


How can I:

a) get rid of the email contacts from the phone and

b) change the synchronisation option so it stops trying to synchronise and stops sending 'failed' messages?


Thanks for your help!!!
