    Hey everyone, got a HTC Legend this and super impressed.
    I am having one minor issue though. I've got a friend who has put their mobile number in their Facebook details and just like everyone else, the Legend has imported it. The issue is this: he has his number with the country code on the front (+61 instead of 0) and I can't send messages to the number when it's in that format (Problem Number 1 obviously).
    The second issue I have, is that I can't work out how to override that number with a number I specify, while keeping the contact linked to his FB profile. With friends that have added extremely phoney numbers (ie. 1800 YOURMUM) it adds both the number I've added (in the Google contact I'm supposing) and their phoney one from FB. The issue seems to be that because the phone number is 'the same' I can't override it with a number without the country code...
    Thanks in advance!

    The only option tht is left would be to re-enter the frnd contact details on the phone and do not link it with TH contact.... The name column is the only criteria that will link any contacts.... I hope this would help Mellow.

    Interesting, I noticed this problem on my HTC Desire (4 days old, and loving it!) earlier this evening and I've been looking for a solution ever since. Anyone got any ideas?

    Glad i'm not the only one that finds it frustrating
    my only solution was to edit/add the correct number in my googlemail (or phone contact) contact account, link the 2 to facebook etc and save
    go back to the cotact showing the 2 numbers, press and hold on the required number then "set as primary" still frustrating as it shows both but at least it defaults to the number u specify (also works with email)

    personally i think people shouldnt add to much detail to the likes of FB and android/fb should give you more options to enable/disable detail
