[Solved] Mass Removing Contacts from Gmail Sync

I set up my Galaxy S II Skyrocket to sync with both my personal and work Gmail accounts. Trouble is, it synced about 4,000 contacts from the work Gmail.

Now, I understand that I can hide those in the display options, but I want them gone completely. I deselected "Contacts" from syncing with my office Gmail, but the huge number of contacts remains.

How can I remove the contacts that are attached with specifically the work Gmail, and leave behind my own personal contacts?

Thank you for the help.


Edit: Well, it figures I'd spend a week figuring this problem out, only to solve it the moment I ask for help. For those who may have a similar problem and stumble across this thread in the future, here's how I solved it:

  • I downloaded to sync my phone with my PC.

  • I then performed a full backup of my phone (especially the contacts).

  • On the left hand side of Kies, under the section labeled "Connected devices," I selected "Contacts" from under my phone. I then selected the tab with my synced emails, and from there could easily select all the contacts associated with the offending account, and deleted them.

  • Click "Save to device" and you're done. Huzzah.
