    My wife got a droid 2 a couple weeks ago and all has ben fine until today. I'm not sure what she has done but somehow all her facebook contacts just showed up in her phone contacts list and I can't delete them with out removing them from her friends list. I remember reading about this when I got my X but I forget what the fix was. Any one know how to fix this?

    You have to remove the sync from facebook. Then those contact will disappear. It's in your settings.

    Settings/Account/Long Press on Facebook, then delete, remove sync, whatever the appropriate step is.

    its in the settings under accounts & sync. disable facebook sync.

    you may want to check the fb app as well as I believe there is an option to sync there as well. I might be mistaken.

    *DroidForums app DOES*

    long press on facebooks gives 2 options; remove account or open account. Do I have to remove the account?

    Home screen/menu/app drawer/contacts/long press on the bar with the plus sign under contacts: a-z, press gmail shouldnt show facebook contacts unless they've been manually added
