    When I go to send a new text message and start typing in a name it starts showing people in my contacts. However it also shows everyone in my facebook list. These people are not in my phone contact list so I can't delete them but I do not want to see them when I'm typing a name to send a text. Anyone know a way to get rid of this? All this facebook syncing is irritating why can't I get rid of it?

    use handsent or some other messaging app or just the default?

    handsent > settings > show mobile num only (make sure its checked)

    Do these people in facebook all have their phone numbers listed. Because you can set the Droid to display contacts only with phone numbers.

    I'm just using the normal text message that came on the phone.. it does show only phone numbers. So to answer hookbill also, yes these are facebook people with phone numbers.. not bringing in emails or anything.. just people that I don't want it to.
