Default I want facebook to just sync contact info to what's already in my phone!

Hi all,

I really need some help, I can't find this anywhere on the threads myself so sorry if it's already been posted. I've just got a Samsung Galaxy S3, all my contacts are in the phone and what I'd like to do is sync the contacts I have with facebook for status's/pictures etc. Even when I select this option from the facebook sync settings, it syncs every one of my facebook friends into my contact list, instead of just the ones who's numbers I have... How can I fix this!?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

Dont sync with facebook, try an app called facebook sync contacts. If I remember correctly it gives you the option to sync all or just the contacts in your phone.

What carrier do you have? My app asked if I just wanted to sync to contacts already on my phone and it did just that. I ended up not wanting people's fb pics on texts and such so I cleared it out, but it worked. I didn't have anyone in my contacts that wasn't already there.

Thanks

I don't think this is something Samsung phones do on their own. I know HTC has its own Sense FB app that will grab pictures and everything from FB and apply it to your contacts on your phone. I think you'll need something other than the FB app from the market place to do that on a Samsung phone.

I had the same issue.

Give SyncMyPix from the play store a try. I've been using that to update contact photos without issue and without it adding ALL my Facebook contacts to my phone.

I use this for pictures. Doesn't do Status though.

Ok. So I ran into a weird problem with the original galaxy s, there were two Facebook sync accounts running, intergrated and app. Since the GS3 only supports one facebook sync account, the intergraded one does not sync pictures so I removed account and opened the Facebook app and found I was logged out. Logged back in, automatically went to sync contacts and set to sync. Pictures on my contacts now!
