    I read the other day that someone was connecting their phone to the TV to watch a file.
    How do I do this?

    How to mass delete phone contacts from the phone only (not sim card)

    Settings > Applications > Manage applications > Menu button > Filter > Select "All" > Scroll down to "Contacts Storage" > "Clear data"

    After this, all your contacts on the phone will be deleted. If you have any contacts on the sim card but notice that they are not being displayed after doing the above, you will need to restart the phone for them to be reloaded again. This is the only way right now to mass delete contacts from the phone only. There are some apps on the market that group phone and sim contacts together, making it hard to segregate phone/sim contacts.

    This is purely for mass delete and not for individual deletion. Also, before you try this, export your contacts to a .vcf in case anything bad that might happen.
