Default How to delete contacts imported by Facebook?

Right, here goes. I've got all the contacts I want in my contacts folder. Some of them are linked to their facebook accounts which I like.

But when I tap phone, a load of people who I only chat to on Facebook are there despite not being in the contacts folder.

So how do I edit what appears under "Phone"

Is there away to get rid of all the contacts that Facebook imported in one go? Or a way to edit my phone directory online?

I didn't know that when I set up my Facebook account it would import anyone who has a number to my Phonebook!

SOLVED:

Just delete your Facebook account. And the one for HTC Sense. That clears down the Contacts that you don't want.

You can re add it, but be quick and uncheck sync contacts (it starts doing it automatically)

Now if only I could find a way to add just seclected contacts I'd be happy

Gah! People keep saying that but it is not true. You do not have to delete facebook.

Go to APPS then tap PEOPLE, then touch MENU key then tap VIEW then UNCHECK whichever lists you do not want displayed in contacts.

I have fascebook and facebook htc and google unchecked, and none of those contacts show in my people or phone contacts.

Its not about the contacts that is in People, but the contacts which are in Phone. Its always the first button I press when I want to make a call. It's so stupid how there is no control over who to add on your list

Even when I deleted facebook, ALL the contacts are STILL there!!!

If you go to Settings -> Accounts and Sync -> Facebook and click the Remove Account button, you will unlink facebook from your phone contacts and they will no longer appear there.

I really wish there was a way to only sync contacts which are already in the phonebook so you could get their facebook profile pics without getting a bunch of unwanted contacts.

This is exactly my problem, it appears that removing HTC Sense Facebook solves the problem, but I actually want to be able to link my contacts to their Facebooks without having the rest of my Facebook in "Phone", so annoying! If anyone solves this issue or knows a way around it, can you drop me a pm. Thanks.

OK, doing the remove account thing has only successfully remove part of my facebook contacts, some reason the other half is still in my Phone menu.

The other thing that is bugging me is that facebook has also decided to sync all the freaking birthdays to my calendar, and somehow my phone decided that it is linked to one of my emails, which does not have anything in its calendar, so it is getting even more annoying now. That means even I removed facebook from my phone, because it is linked to one of my emails they're still there!!!

I'm having the exact same problem, and none of the solutions work!

I unchecked facebook (both entries) from my sync options - didn't work
I deleted facebook (both entries) from my sync options - didn't work

What it has done is remove them from my 'People' list, but they're still all there in my contact list when I push 'Phone'. And because a single press starts to call them, I've already rang about 5 people that I don't want to speak to!

Has anybody got another suggestion? It is maddening that I'm not allowed to just delete the people I don't want on there!

You have to actually delete the facebook accounts off of your phone.

Menu > Settings > Accounts & Sync > Facebook > Remove account.

When you add it back, make sure you don't let it autosync all of your contacts to your phone. Just unclick autosync or whatever the option is called. This will remove all of your Facebook contacts from your "Phone" contact list.

It's a pain though, you have to be double quick at hitting that button or it will sync without even asking you

I'm working my way through the same problem, although I've ended up permanently wiping a few of my contacts in the process

As quick as I am to stop facebook for htc sense from syncing, once it starts it finishes even though you tell it not to.
To get around this:

Go to settings > accounts and sync > deselect auto-sync, then deselect background data.

Add your accounts as necessary, they'll not automatically sync.
Go back into settings > wireless and networks and enable airplane mode

You can now go back to accounts and sync, re-enable background data and auto-sync then disable the specific auto sync settings.

Then finally disable airplane mode and it should all be syncing properly!

Hope this saves someone from going insane trying to set it up and beat the auto-sync.

I thought i figured it out by doing it this way that i found out not so long ago but i was wrong :/grrrr

Ok so i just figured this out about 10 mins ago, Here's what you need to do...

Firstly delete your Facebook account(s) on your phone...

next go into your actual facebook and click on account - Edit Friends - Phonebook -and on the right hand side you will see it says...


If you would like to remove your mobile contacts from Facebook, you need to disable the feature on your mobile phone and visit this page.... Click on the blue link....


Next it will say.... When you import contacts into Facebook from your email, mobile, instant messaging service or other social network, we may use this information to create friend suggestions for you and your friends. We also display these contacts in your Facebook phonebook.

If you choose to remove your imported contacts, they will no longer appear in your Phonebook and friend suggestions may be less relevant to you and your friends.

To remove all imported contacts, please make sure that you disable the Facebook synchronisation feature on your phone first, if you have ever enabled it. Then, click the 'Remove' button below....

(you have deleted it anyway so theres no need to)

Click remove and you will get a notification through as soon as its gone through....if it says theres a problem just try again (took me 2 goes)...

Once completed go back to your phone and create your accounts again....and you should not have your facebook contacts in your phone button if all has gone well....


(i unchecked sync contacts on my htc sense facebook just for safety)

Thanks for this as it was annoying me too.

What I have noticed is that when I re-install facebook from the 'accounts & sync' button in 'settings' and select option 'Don't sync' during installtion, that none of the facebook contact phone numbers come back into the phone which is exactly what I wanted.

However when I install the facebook for HTC sense under 'accounts & sync' during installation it starts to sync everything. Even when I uncheck the sync contacts button it seems to have already sync'ed in the facebook contacts phone numbers in again!

Has this happened to you? If not where have I gone wrong...

Many thanks

But the problem still remains. We need to somehow stop Facebook from adding their list of people from their Phonebook into our android phone contact list when we sync.

I certainly still feel the need to be able to sync Facebook with our People app, because I find that very useful as it will update the status of my friends from Facebook etc. etc.

Isn't there any kind of app for this issue? Anyone?

I too have found this really annoying. I'm quite happy for the contacts that are already on my phone to have their Facebook status updated, but don't want it to add the "friends" from my Facebook list into my phone.

I'll have a play with the suggestions that Rob_Squire has made, and come back if I can get this working.

cheers,

Grim.

What we need is the phone dialer app (google own) to have an option to make facebook contacts not visible. The HTC People App has this and it works.

There is a google defect no. 10618
Issue 10618 - android - Dialer showing all contacts - no view display option (e.g. only exchange contacts) - Project Hosting on Google Code

Having an option to only display google contacts ala HTC then that will solve everything.

I've found that deleting the HTC Sense Facebook account is the only option, you can't have it running unless you want your "Phone" list clogged as far as I can see

I'm so happy to find out that I am NOT the only one that is super annoyed with this whole FB contact sync issue. I HATE that my fb "friends" birthdays are in my calendar!!!! I completely removed the fb app but I really would like for the fb pictures to be back by my contacts info... I had it like that somehow then then had to reset my phone and now I can't figure it out. I am going to try some of the suggestions already listed, maybe they will help... ugh, technology...

Excellent post thanks Anne as this was doing my head in. For anyone else reading this I found that utilising people sense but facebook through opera mini rather than the facebook app has stopped any syncing of contacts and I have an extra 20mb on my phone internal memory as a result )

P.S Opera mini is much faster and easier to use than the facebook app imo.

Default problem solved

Hi Guys,

I've just got the new HTC One X with ICS and I had the same problem with all the facebook contacts still remaining in the 'Phone' section.

It sounds to me like the problem might be solved already but incase anyone comes here looking for a solution like I did then this is what worked for me:

Go to your phone settings > Accounts & Sync > Facebook > Remove (up the top right).

then follow the instuctions from Gizmodo about removing your facebook contact.

EDIT: This is my first post so I can't add links so just google 'remove facebook contacts from phone' and for me it was the second item.

Once you've done this, wait a couple of minutes (not sure if needed but facebook said it might take a couple of minutes to delete my contacts) then go back to your phone and run facebook, sign in but make sure you click 'Do Not Sync'.

Good Luck Guys, hopefully I don't get an update somewhere along the way which undoes all my hard work.
