^^Yep..... that method doesn't work and will lock up the phone.
If you don't care about what iOS version or modem firmware version (for a future unlock), restore current version w/iTunes --- after the restore and iTunes recognizes a new phone, just cancel and disconnect. Virgin iPhone.
If you want a lower version and keep the older unlockable modem firmware, restore with a custom firmware.
Remember when iTunes wants to set up a new phone, cancel! You could even avoid that by disconnecting when iTunes displays the 10 second countdown window after the restore is complete.

Thanks for the info. I tried this but was unsuccessful. My computer did not even recognize my iPhone. Any other suggestions?

I had an issue with this, this evening so I will post my situation / solution:
iPhone 4 (newest 4.2.7 firmware), not jailbroken, Verizon).
I had 507 contacts that had imported from my email contacts on my work computer. It is an exchange account I imported from my work computer to mail.
I was using an exchange email account so when trying to sync with the different things in iTunes: Mac Address Book, Gmail, Yahoo (with all of these having no saved contacts within them) and it would not override / delete the contacts on my iPhone even when I told it to through iTunes.
I had to physically go on the iPhone into Settings --> Mail --> and turn off the option of the mail uploading my contacts from that network. Then it asked me if I wanted to delete all the ones on my iPhone I clicked YES and bam, all my contacts were gone.
Hope this information can help someone.

Hi. I have an iPhone 3G and am trying to delete most but not all of the contacts listed in its memory. It is an old iPhone of mine which I haven't used for a while but would like to return back to. Is there a quick way of deleting more than half of the 400 contacts saved on the phone?

This is easy to do if you have iCloud Contact Sync enabled. Simply log in to your iCloud account on your computer, go to Contacts, select the entries you want deleted and hit the Del button. If you do not have iCloud enabled you can delete multiple contacts at once in the way shown here:
This is the app from the video.

Or you can delete them via iTunes.
But make sure that you have backup your iPhone contacts before the deletion.
