    Question how do you change a contacts name once it has been sync'd with facebook

    Is there any way to change a contacts name to like a nickname instead of having there facebook name in your contacts list...

    Bump -- I know this has been answered, but I cant figure it out.

    Stupid friends and their facebook nicknames.

    i think you can if you turn off facebook sync before you edit them.

    I tried that -- for some reason, this particular account takes the facebook name, and not the name in my contacts or the nickname.

    This guy adds a II to the end of his name, so facebook shows it as X Y Z II, and I just want it to say X Z. The droid shows him as X II.

    How about adding a phone number to a facebook contact, I just constantly have to add new contacts with just the number because I can't edit facebook contacts...

    the solution to this problem (at least the one that I used) was to go onto my gmail on my PC and create a contact there with a phone #... with the same name as the facebook contact that I wanted the phone # to be under and after it synced it should place the phone # into the facebook contact info

    what i do is make the number a new contact and name it exactly like the facebook contact. it will automatically put the number under the facebook contact.
