    How can I delete all contacts in one operation?

    I have somehow messed up all my contacts whilst synching to my Google account. I have backups. How can I bulk delete all my contacts on my Playbook? I can't see a way...

    I looked at my BlackBerry PlayBook Contacts, and this is what I see after touching the Help button regarding Deleting Contacts.

    Nothing about bulk deleting contacts, but if I find a way or another member has a solution, I will update this thread as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

    Thanks both. I had followed Joe's route but drew a blank too unfortunately.

    Don't know if this will work but why not delete your whole gmail account from your playbook and then start fresh and re-add it?

    I was going to suggest that also, but bigmig69 may be correct here, I don't see why not.

    rafiki, go to Accounts, remove the account from your PlayBook, look for your Gmail contacts, if they have been deleted then re-attempt to add your Gmail account.

    Let us know the outcome.

    Thank you.

    It sorted itself out actually. I think what happened was I deleted all my contacts in Gmail on my PC. Then, I guess it syncd with the Playbook. I then restored the contacts on the PC from the last good backup and it syncd again with the Playbook. Suddenly all was good again!

    Glad to hear it worked out that way, funny how "accidental" acts will straighten everything out itself
