    Re: contact name changes

    Contacts synced from facebook cannot be edited, you need to go in to your contacts and make a contact with the same name as the facebook contact. When you resync your facebook contacts they should overwrite eachother and then you can edit it. If it does not overwrite itself than you need to manually merge the two contacts into one
