    OK, I lost a contact somehow and so created a new one with name only but no phone, email details. Then I linked the contact to that persons facebook profile, so now the contact diplays their details from facebook. Then I sync with gmail contacts and looking at their contact in gmail it shows some link metadata rather than the actuial phone numbers etc. This is the data:

    <HTCData><Facebook>id:729501399/friendof:637902454</Facebook></HTCData>

    Is there any way to have the phone copy the contact data it reads from facebook and store this in the phone in the person's contact record? This way it will track through to gmail contacts.

    Thanks, Paul

    Yes this would be very handy. Is there an app that can do this at the moment?

    +1 I keep looking for a way to do this but I can't find anything on Android or PC that does more than export/import the email, the birthday, or the phone number.

    Bump for this. I'd like to be able to copy email addresses and birthdays from Facebook to Gmail via contacts.

    You can alternatively export gmail contacts to a .csv file and import it into Outlook.
