    how do i make my contact list NOT include facebook people? i like the fact that you can sink theyre facebook/phone numbers, but there are a TON of people in my contact list that is only facebook pages with no numbers. How do i switch it to where only people i put in my phonebook show up and not alllll the facebook people??

    easiest way I have found is to do this. Open up your contact list, at the top it says "contacts A-Z" and below that it probably says "Contacts: All Contacts". click there and it gives you the choice of what contacts you want shown, just choose Google to use the google contacts you probably have synced up, and all the facebook only contacts will disappear.

    yeah, it doesn't fix it there. those contacts are pulled from anyone that has a phone number, google or facebook. not sure how to fix that one.

    Alright ive done this and its just not true, when you setup your facebook account it only pulls in contacts in your facebook phonebook thing.... which is not all your freinds. For instance of my 600+ "friends" I only have like 80 or 90 in this contacts list which is found by clicking friends, then on the left you see "Phonebook" ONLY THOSE FRIENDS ARE ADDED

    HOWEVER, Syncing your facebook will automatically add FACEBOOK PHOTOS to any name that matches up to your GOOGLE CONTACTS LIST.. However they have to match the name perfectly to what it is in FACEBOOK.

    heres how I fixed this for me

    I have a droid X.
    You might have All Contacts selected to display

    1. Go into your contact list
    2. tap the bar that says Contacts: with the green plus sign.
    3. From the menu select Phone Contacts

    Im right there with you, when using the dialer, it has all your fb friends that have phone numbers. I do not want ANY of my fb friends on my phone. Still looking on how to solve this when using the dialer, when you use the contact app itself you can filter this out but I will never be using that as I always use the dialer
