Deleting gmail contact list

UGH!  I am new to this device and I had Verizon transfer all 300 of my contacts from my old phone to the tour.  When I ran email set up with my gmail account i didn't notice that i checked the contacts box and it deleted all 300 of the contacts I had changed over and left only 20 or so (who i imagine are from my gmail account). 

 

I deleted the gmail account from my phone, is there a way to delete the gmail list from my contact list?  I go to options and it's the only contact list in my phone and it doesn't give me an option to delete.  I even tried re-adding the gmail account to my phone and unchecking the contact list button--to no avail.  HELP!!!

Re: Deleting gmail contact list

If its tied to your address book do the following:

 

Open up your address book

hit menu > options

type rset

you will NOT see any blank to type in, it will just give a popup asking if you want to delete the address book.

select yes/OK and there you go.
