    Angry can anyone help?

    why cant you change the name of a contact once it has been sync'd with facebook, is there any way to just have their first name or just there last name instead of having both like it has on facebook???

    Only thing I can think of...Did you uncheck the facebook sync after you initial contact sync w/ facebook? If its still turned on, try turning it off.

    Home>Settings>Accounts and Sync If the symbol is green its on

    I was able to change the names of my contacts by going into gmail and editing the information under "My Contacts". it took a short time to sync but once it did all was good.
