    Question How do I delete read-only contacts?

    I'm no techie, just an average consumer. Recently downloaded Facebook Sync app without realizing that it would automatically sync ALL contacts upon installation. Now I have over 1500 read-only contacts that I don't need or want and can't delete.

    What should I do to get rid of these contacts?

    Did the samething. If you remove the fb account from My accounts it will remove the contacts, or at least it did for me. I then went to the market and got a free FB app. Now it works like i want it to. What i cannot get is why my contacts have email address and phone number from several years ago. Anyone know how to wipe all contacts and start over.

    Thanks, guys! As an aside, when I tried to remove the facebook app for droid the request was denied and the device informed me that I could only remove the app by restoring factory default.

    Your suggestions and time are greatly appreciated!
