Default 2 Problems syncing Facebook

I have synced my Facebook account to my contacts and chose the "Sync with existing contacts" option. However, I still get all my Facebook friends in my contacts. I don't need my contacts cluttered with 200+ extra people I have no need to contact outside of Facebook itself. I also don't want to limit my contacts list to "with phone number only" because I have some contacts that I only have an email address for.

Anyway, is there a work-around for this?

Also, when one of my linked Facebook friends calls me, I get the low-rez tiny thumbnail version of their profile pic blown up instead of the higher rez version. It looks like crap.

Any help on these would be greatly appreciated! Both of these issues were not a problem on my previous phone (HTC Evo 3D)

I hate the little notification that pops up asking you to sync your FB contacts. I had that happen on my past phone and it always annoyed the heck out of me.

That annoyed me as well. Go to contacts settings, then contacts to display and unchecked FB
