    You cant truly edit them. The only solution is to create a second contact with the exact same name with the contact info you want to add. The droid will instantly (and invisibly in the background) merge the 2 contacts. Going forward you will be able to edit that contact as normal.

    adding just the contact name the same will not merge the contacts, you have to put the email address that is on there facebook account in the new contact info and then they will murge

    Not true, it will merge them with identical names alone. I actually had a problem with this as I know two people named Brian Jackson and it merged their contacts (only one of them had an email address if it matters). I had to add middle initials to prevent it.

    Sorry for bringing back a dead topic but I wanna ask if you change the name of the contact after the merge then Facebook sync again and give you the contact again?

    edit or delete contacts

    Install "GO Contacts" from the Google Play store.
    You can edit or delete any contact, even Facebook contacts.

    Android rules...
