    Hello. Welcome to Android Central.

    What device do you have?

    Was it a Gmail account?
    Are they displaying as Google contacts, Device contacts or other contacts eg Samsung,
    Did you already have the contacts you want on your device, or Google account.
    Have you done so now.

    Do you want your preferred contacts to store as Google contacts or device only contacts.
    If you go to Contacts - Menu - Contacts to Display and find where those email contacts are displayed. You should then be able to select Menu - Delete - Select All and remove.

    It's not clear exactly what your problem is.
    Did you mess up your Google (aka Gmail) contacts?
    Just contacts on the phone or the online contacts also?
    Or is the list that was on the phone some other non-Google contact list?
    Do you still have a copy of the separate contact lists or do you need to try to recreate them?

    Well, I'll take a guess...
    Maybe you use Gmail and your contacts synced to Google after downloading all contacts to the phone, thereby corrupting your Google contacts.

    This will show you how to put your online Google contacts back as they were at any time in the last 30 days:

    After restoring your online contacts just resync them to the phone.
