    Another Facebook Syncing thread - a little different though!

    So, I got a droid yesterday, set up my facebook acct through the MotoBlur thing, everything's cool. And then my girlfriend is playing with it and she accidentally deletes herself from my contact list. I couldn't figure out how to get her back, so I deleted the facebook acct and reinstalled it hoping it'd refresh everything. It didn't, it just deleted all of the facebook contacts (not a HUGE deal, but I liked the pics being there for my contacts). Does anyone know how I can get the facebook contacts re-added to my list of contacts? I'm not using the marketplace version of Facebook, so that's not the problem. I can't figure out how to do this!

    Just curious if when using MotoBlur's version of Facebook it pulled all of your FB contacts in to your phonebook? My Droid 2 did and I am looking for a workaround so that FB only syncs with the contacts I have in my phone and not pull all my FB friends into my phonebook.

    When you open the native facebook app on your phone then hit menu>settings>go down to "other Settings"> sync contacts. inside there you can tell it to either "sync all" or "sync with existing contacts" or "Remove facebook data"... If your your having problems getting someone to show back up again then remove data and resync with "existing contacts" it should resync it. make sure the name in your contact matches the facebook name.. letter for letter..

    Edit: make sure to leave your sync on the "power control bar" ON.. And then be patient

    Motorola's Facebook integration is terrible and rigid. Not only will it add all of your Facebook contacts to your phone's contact list, it will replace all of your contact photos with their profile picture from Facebook. How stupid is that? Enough of my friends on Facebook don't use their self-portrait as their profile picture and it's screwing with me. And really, who wants their contacts' photos updating every week? Garbage.

    The phone hardware wise is awesome, but the lack of preferences in the Moto Blur crap is infuriating.

    I've completely removed Facebook integration and am only checking it via the web browser for now.

    I reinstalled the Facebook App and re-added my Facebook account to test this. The only item I have under "Other settings" is "Helpful tips".

    Also, under Phone Settings -> Accounts -> Menu -> [contact] Picture source, the only option is my Facebook account and I cannot uncheck it!

    Another curious thing to note:
    After I install the Facebook App, if I go back to Phone Settings->Accounts->Add Account there are now two Facebook icons. One is a little larger than the other. If I clock the smaller of the two it takes me through the setup wizard and imports all my Facebook friends - and thus messes things up. If I click the larger of the two, nothing happens.

    I hated the fact that all of my FB friends were in my contacts so I deleted the "social network" facebook. I haven't looked to see if it removed the pictures and everything from contacts that were already exsisting. I have enjoyed using "facebook for android" that I downloaded from the market in the few minutes I've used it. Much easier for me!

    yeah same here. i think moto is blocking the regular android app from being used for the accounts so you are stuck using their crappy version.

    i also removed the existing facebook through social networking - i don't care to see all of my facebook contacts and everyones status. if i want to see there status ill pull there profile up through the facebook app. i saw alot of the battery life was being used up due to the social networking, constantly syncing my contacts updating there statuses.

    it did remove my pictures, although i wonder if the app "syncmypix" will resolve that.
