    I had a problem and had to delete one of my contacts. Before I deleted the contact, I had their name, phone number, email and facebook info. I am adding the person back in again as a contact. How do I get the facebook info for the contact. I can add myself the other if I have to but have no clue how to get the facebook info. Thanks for any help you can give.

    re-sync your contacts in facebook app. that should do the trick.

    And make sure their contact name is exactly the same as their facebook name.

    I went into account and sync. I synced the facebook contacts but nothing happened. Did I do the wrong thing. Both names are the same.

    Try "sync with contacts" only or something along those lines.

    if that doesn't fix it then i'm at a loss. Some of my contacts that do have a facebook aren't really synced in my contacts list. Doesn't bug me too much though.

    you have to get facebook to sync all the contacts, if you have one contact with just their fb and another with their #, you have to join them then

    open up the facebook app on your phone hit menu button click home then menu again go to settings then go to the bottom of the screen and click sync contacts. That should do
