Run Desktop Manager on your pc, connect the handheld and choose Backup and Restore. Then choose Advanced and in the right hand list choose address (book) and underneath the list click Clear. I should reiterate that this will clear the address book completely.

That deletes them all. I think (I may be wrong) that the OP wanted to do something like the Windows "CTRL key" deal where multiple entries can be deleted at once - not all of them.

I have found that while in the address book you cannot highlight more than one entry at a time. Any other suggestions??

Are you syncing with Outlook? If so, delete them in Outlook (which is quicker) and then re-sync.

I don't think there is a quick way to selectively delete multiple contacts on the BB itself.
