    So I deleted somebody on Facebook and I am unable to remove them from my contacts. It pops up with the following message:

    "To remove this contact from your phone, remove this person from your friends list on the following providers. Facebook."

    As I mentioned before I have already deleted them from my Facebook, but still cannot delete the contact.

    Anyone experience anything similar to this? Thank you in advance!

    Try deleting and then reinstalling the facebook app. That should force a sync of the contacts.

    Or you could just try going to settings, accounts and sync and removing facebook and then add it again. It should re-sync with the changes.

    Yes it does, with the lock next to their email, phone number, url, etc.

    I uninstalled the Facebook ap, but I noticed that all of my Facebook contacts are still in my address book. Reinstalling it didn't force a sync, either.

    Is there any reason why it's taking so long to sync this time? The first time it took like 2 minutes, but it's been about an hour and it's still not done.

    I'm talking to a guy in another thread with the same issue. I don't know what's taking so long, i've unsyncd facebook a few times in the last few days with speedy results on resync. I guess you could try restarting the phone and see if that helps.
