    Hello and welcome!

    If you remove your facebook account thru phone settings - account & then download the facebook for android from the market, you can choose how to sync contacts...

    Another option is to go into your contacts and press menu, then select display, scroll down and look for Facebook and uncheck all contacts. At least I am pretty sure the dx has that same feature.
