Hi guys,

i am new right here and also with Desire HD. I just have it since 2 days.
Now, i have my first question:

I am organizing all my contact, grouped by categories, in Outlook 2003. This is working fine so far with HTC Sync and the Categories will be created as groups in my DHD:
BUT, there are still the "system default" groups like "friends", "family", and so on, which i don't need.
Now, i wanted to delete these groups, but i am not able. I only can delete my groups, created via sync.

Does anybody know how to get rid of these group?

Many thanks in advance
Henner

For those how have the same issue, i just found a way.
I installed the "Contacts Group Manager" App from the Android Store, there you can delete all the useless system group folder....
Now, i am happy...;)

Thanks, I just installed the app a few minutes ago and it did the trick. Do you know what the difference between the group "favorites" and "htc favorites" is? I have the same contacts in both groups so I'm not sure which one I need to keep. I know one of them is important because it makes the favorite contacts show up at the top of the contacts list.

It's a full contact manager/replacement altogether, I'm happy with the stock one, so I found an app that only deletes contacts and groups, it even helped me to delete the default Google contact groups, A back up is recommended anyway.

Contact Deleter by Gabenative

Can't post links yet so add this to the play store url:
