    I just bought my droid a few weeks ago, and I'm loving. Just have one small problem though. The first thing I did when I started up my droid was sync it with my facebook. It was great to see that great long list of contacts in my phone. The only problem is that many of those contacts did not come with phone numbers, as many of my friends don't see it fit to post their phone number on facebook. When I go to edit the contact to add the number, it says that facebook contacts can not be edited. Not sure how to go about fixing this, don't know if I have to create a seperate contact and then merge or what. Anyone have any prior problems with this or a solution on how to fix this? Thank you very much.

    When you go into contacts you can change/add a phone number just not any of the info at the bottom under facebook contact. Hit the plus sign next to phone or whatever you want to add and it should let you update that way, thats what worked for me.

    Hope that helps

    When I go to change an exsisting contact from facebook, I'm not seeing the plus sign. Do I have to do anything to pull it up?

    You have to create a new contact and put the number in that. If you name it the same as the Facebook contact they'll automatically merge by default

    I did that and named the contact the exact FB name - but no joy. Either I end up with the phone number I put in.....or the FB info without the phone number.

    I think that sometimes it takes a while for the two to merge. Sometimes I have two contacts with the exact same name for a couple days before they merge. I see now there is a "join" option once you make the new contact... So it's like this...

    You have your Facebook contact John Doe. You create a new contact John Doe with their phone number(s). Go into one of the John Does and click menu (the 4-bar button)/Edit Contact/menu/Join (bottom right of the options given or far right, depending how you are holding phone). It will probably suggest the other John Doe as the person you Join with, otherwise you can search for them.

    Good luck! This worked for me, I just did it with a double-contact I forgot I still had. :)

    Go into the FB app, under friends tap on the picture of the friend to add, tap the contacts icon,then menu and NEW, then add the info and save, then delete the old one if it's there.
