    I have ringtones set for certain people so that I have a clue who it when they call. When the contacts app decides to update/sync contacts from facebook, my ringtone data is erased and I have to reassign. My call log is also emptied. Is there another app for contacts/phonebook that will allow data to be retained?

    It catches on as long as the first and last name are exactly the same. When it syncs or updates, sometimes it separates the contacts if they are not identical. So make sure you edit the contacts and that they have the exact same name as it appears on facebook. Ringtone data assigned is still lost in the process of updating/syncing though. Somewhat frustrating
