    No, as far as i know you can only sync with Google mail. It's better than Facebook anyway..

    The Facebook app has a live folder you can add to your homescreen with all of your Facebook contacts.

    I guess importing contact information from Facebook is far better as Gmail ends up importing contacts from every single email you get whether you want it or not and the same thing comes up in your phone.
    Lots of people use a lot of symbols n shit in their 'name' field in Orkut and the same thing comes to your phone. So I really dont like the idea of importing all contacts from Google.

    I badly want a way to import email addresses and phone numbers from facebook. Hope it happens soon.

    Add shortcut > folder > live folder > Facebook phonebook

    Thanks for the tip. Really helpful.

    You need to install the Facebook app first, before you can get the phonebook option under live folders.

    I think your looking for the facebook widget. Go to add (longtouch) > Widgets > facebook. You should then be able to see some live updates from facebook on your homescreen.

    I cant find my facebook phonebook in any folder. I have had it before, i think i just logged out or something and now i cant find the folder. Is there something I'm overlooking?

    If I figured it out when I first got my phone, it shouldn't be so hard the 2nd time around lol
