    I have seen the same thing. It appears to be a bug if you sync your contacts with fb. Only fix I have found is going through your contacts and removing duplicates and any contacts that are just fb contacts.

    I just looked again, there is a setting for just cell phones to show up. Even with that turned off I still don't get email addresses to show in SMS programs.
