    go to gmail.com and go to contacts and unclick the option that adds every email to the contacts... then delete them all and start over

    even if you go into contacts and then upper left menu, click on the gmail acct, then click to remove? I did that and it removed all the numbers that were synced

    once you delete them from the gmail website, go to your contacts app, then choose preferences from left drop down, and choose "Sync Now" it should remove the contacts that you deleted from google. The pre doesnt sync contacts that frequently, so if you delete a contact on google, dont expect it to disappear instantly on the phone.

    Also, move the contacts that you want to sync with your phone to the "My Contacts" section of Google contacts, then Sync Now, again. This is how I avoid all the one-time and/or occasional use email addresses syncing with my phone.

    Do you guys know how to stop Yahoo Mail from syncing? I use my gmail contacts exclusively and would like to get rid of my Yahoo profile on my Pre.

    Go to Contacts - > Preferences and Accounts - > Then tap Yahoo which will bring you to Remove Account and poof gone.

    It will just delete your contact sync and you can still otherwise keep any yahoo mail accts synced.
