    Help.... disaster!

    Somebody asked me to download an app on their phone this morning.... I accidently without thinking logged into their market with my google account.

    Now all my contacts and calander has synced on their phone and there is 100s, how can I remove all my contacts in one go without wiping the handset? (other than manually deleting them?)

    Hopefully there is a way.....

    It's an android device.

    You should be able to filter the phonebook to just google contacts. Then you should be able to select them all and remove them. Might take a little while but pretty sure you can multi-select them (if there isn't a select all option)

    Do you think if I export all the contacts out of my google account, and delete them all from my google account and do a sync it will remove them?

    Have you tried just removing your account from their phone in "Settings > Accounts & Sync"?

    Should then sync up with their account when you re-enter their details and remove anything from your account

    Yes that would probably work too.
