    Can't Delete Facebook Contacts - Help!

    Hey guys,

    So I accidentally added all my Facebook contacts to my Droid X. I unchecked sync contacts in the Facebook app, but about 10 Facebook contacts still remained. I tried deleting them but it won't let me. It says "To remove this contact from your phone, please remove this person from your friend lists on the following providers".

    Unfortunately, there aren't any providers!

    I uninstalled the Facebook app, cleared my phone of all contacts, etc. I can't find any way to get rid of these short of a complete wipe of the phone (which I don't want to do because of all the apps I have...)

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Have you tried doing in your gmail account on your computer? Google stores all of your contacts on the cloud and then they are synced to your phone from there. Worth a shot.

    How To Remove Facebook Contacts From Contacts

    Hit arrow button displaying apps, click Contacts, Click Menu, Click More, Click Manage Accounts, Click Facebook, Click Remove Account. All Facebook contacts will be deleted from your phone contacs. Only phone contacts will remain. The facebook app will remain in your apps to be used when you want.

    I only have Google as a network on my phone. I have removed all others. The contacts that Facebook added are not being removed!!!!

    Does anybody have any ideas on how to remove these facebook contacts? I've got 100s of them and tried all kinds of stuff to delete them. They are absolutely keeping me from using my text app and make it difficult to place phone calls, etc!

    I have been having this issue since the day I got the phone on launch day, and the only thing I came up with is....

    Go to your contact page, hit the menu button, click display groups, and only display your gmail account, and that includes any contacts you may have added on gmail AND the contacts you have input manually on the phone.

    I have tried this, it helps you visually, but it does not help the performance of the phone. The stray contacts from facebook are still left behind dragging down the whole system.
