UnSync Google Contacts

[ Edited ]

I Sync'd Google Contacts using the mobile Google Sync application on my Storm. But, that was the first time I have done and due to lack of proper knowledge, I haven't done it properly. It imported all the gmail addresses and google account names which I dont want them on my phone. Can any one tell me how to UnSync all those imported Google contacts to be removed from my Storm?

Re: UnSync Google Contacts

 

Are the listed in your Address Book?

 


If you are having errors in your Calendar or Address Book on your BlackBerry, and you wish to delete the entire Calendar (or Address Book) database on your BlackBerry, follow the directions below. Make certain you have a good copy of your Calendar or Contacts elsewhere, as this procedure will complete delete ALL Calendar entries and/or Address Book entries on your BlackBerry.

1. Open Desktop Manager on your PC.

2. Open up Backup/Restore > Advanced.

3. From Advanced you'll see a split pane screen. The left pain is what is going to be backed up from your device and the right is a list of the currently existing databases.

3. Highlight on the right side your Address Book database (or your Calendar database) and click the arrow in the middle pointing to the left. This will copy the information over and prepare it for back-up.

4. Once the back-up has completed, hit the Clear button at the bottom to erase and clean out the entire address book database (or Calendar database).

5. After it's finished, it will ask you if you want to save the back-up you've created, say yes and check the device to make sure the address book (or calendar) has been properly cleared out. Now, resync the necessary contact information and you should be set to go.

Re: UnSync Google Contacts

Thanks for you advice. But, my issues is :

1. I have Phone numbers on my Storm which are not at all related to Google contacts.

2. Using the Google Sync, I have imported all the email addresses and now I want to delete just the email addresses or whatever information is imported thru Google Sync and want to leave my phone numbers as they were before.

I dont want to lose any of the phone numbers. Is it possible to just remove the imported ones leaving my phone book as it is?

Thanks.

Re: UnSync Google Contacts

I don't think so.

 

Just delete those contacts individually.

Re: UnSync Google Contacts

Sorry to bring up such an old thread but there's actually a very easy solution and I just wanted to put it out there. 

 

Open up the Google Sync application, open the menu and click Sign Out.  This will remove all contacts synced with Google Sync and also sign you out of the application.
