Does anyone knows a procedure (or appropriate software) to delete all contacts in a smartphone running Windows Mobile?

well... you could do a hard reset. But then you would lose everything not just contacts.

Just the Contacts, and just on the phone? You do that and they will all be gone on Outlook on the PC when you sync. Is that what you want?

You can create a contacts folder in Outlook, move all your contacts into it and sync. The Phone will sync with the now empty root contact folder in Outlook effectively removing all the contacts from the phone. Disconnect, then move them back in Outlook, but if you sync again, they'll be back on the phone.

Ah, interesting. I was thinking that this was a one sided thing. If you only had the phone and wanted to clean it. Not if you had the desktop sync setup. Good idea Sven.
