    Just received my first android phone today. And i dont have a clue.
    Samsung Galaxy Note 2

    My phone has Synced all my contacts from facebook. But none of them have phone numbers.
    I was just wondering is there a way to Join contacts you add manually to sim or phone to the contacts already stored by facebook.

    It looks messy having The same name twice in the contacts book.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Not that I'm aware of. I never sync Facebook contacts to phone because of this.

    Facebook is a pain and unless you have the name and e-mail in your phone's contacts (exactly as facebook has it) when you sync facebook, they will not join; you then have to join them on by one by one by one by one by one by one :D

    I agree with MiXoLoGiSt and do not sync my facebook contacts. I do recommend importing all your contacts to gmail (when you import from sim, select google) it makes it 1000x's easier to edit and see your contacts from your phone and at

    I've got a similar issue with importing my contacts from Handheld Contact. I have contacts with a work/home/cell/pager/fax numbers and 2 email addresses but it only seems to import the main 3 numbers being work/home/mobile and the main email. I see there is a way to manually add additional phone numbers and email addresses in individual contacts BUT I'm wondering if there is an automatic way to make sure all the phone numbers and email addresses import without having to edit 700+ contacts individually.
