Anyone know of a way to delete all contacts of an iPhone in one go?  I need to also wipe the contacts in iTunes before restoring a cleaner version of contacts from a contacts backup app?

How silly of me to forget that "there is an app for that" :)

Thanks.  I would have happily spent 69p for such an app months ago if I rememebred that rather than spend hours over the months either manually deleting 300 LinkedIN contacts on my phone only to see them reappear after a sync with iTunes :(
