How do I delete a contact list on my Blackberry Bold?

I linked a gmail account by mistake to my phone and all the contacts synced along with it.  I've since deleted the gmail account, but all the contacts are still there.  With the contacts list, I can designate which list to look at, but I can not figure out how to delete the gmail contact list from my phone completely.  Any help would be appreciated.

Re: How do I delete a contact list on my Blackberry Bold?

Here is something I found in the BlackBerry Knowledge Base:

To clear contacts in a Gmail® contact list on the BlackBerry® smartphone, please complete the following steps:

Note: Back up the BlackBerry smartphone. For assistance creating a backup file, see KB12487.

  1. From the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options > Advanced Options >Service Books.
  2. Highlight the <username> [SYNC] service book. Press the Menu key and choose Delete.
  3. Open Contacts on the BlackBerry smartphone.
  4. Press the Menu key and click Options.
  5. Type RSET in the Contacts options (this can be typed anywhere in the Contacts Options screen).
  6. The following prompt appears: Wireless synchronization for <username> is not enabled. Wipe contact list anyway?
  7. Click Yes.
