Hey abcwestport,

Welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.

 

To remove the unwanted contacts and contact list please complete the following:

1. First backup your BlackBerry® Smartphone as shown here: http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/KB12487.

2. Disable the contact sync option for the unwanted contacts http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/KB22430

3. Go into Options> Device> Advanced System Settings> Default Services> Set you default contact list.
4. Then go to Options> Device> Advanced System Settings> Service Books> delete the SYNC service book associated to the email account (email account name [SYNC])
5. Go to Contacts> Options> Highlight the contact list you no longer want and type RSET, this will clear the contacts associated with that list.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks

-HB
