"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1 - do a factory restore on it, this will delete EVERYTHING

2 - once that completes, you will SYNC it again BUT you will tell the iphone to ONLY sync apps/games

In itunes, you will see under the sync settings that you can turn off the syncing capabilty for contacts and notes (essentially, you will simply leave them UNCHECKED)

let me know if you have any questions

Yes of course, forgot to mention the iPhone 2 is jailbroken.  If reset via iTune, it will erase as it is.

With the iPhone plugged in to your computer and iTunes up, select the Info tab up top the iTunes window. Once the Info window opens, simply uncheck the sync boxes for each feature. A prompt will come up to confirm that you wish to delete all of, say, contacts. Yes. Done.
