Remove multiple iPhone contacts (imported from Gmail)?

Question

I made a terrible mistake and synced all my Gmail contacts to my iPhone so now there are hundreds of contacts of people I don't give a fig about and most of them are just email addresses. iPhone only lets you delete contacts one at a time PAIN IN THE BUTT and the way that I added them isn't synced thru Googl Exchange. Is there a way to remove multiple contacts? I don't have OS X.

Have you installed iTunes and tried to manage your contact list from there? I've never tried that but it's worth a try.

Either that or try gmail to manage contacts, remove any without phone numbers, or make a separate group that only your contacts with phone numbers go in, that way when you import, you can import the group that has phone numbers, leaving everything else.

Within Gmail, you can turn on or off the option to create a contact for every person you have ever emailed. Turn the option of and no new contacts will be made.

Next step is to delete every contact you never use. It's a lot of work if you emailed a lot of persons. But its worth it.
