    My brother just got a Droid Pro, and asked me how to stop facebook from syncing with contacts (doesn't want all those people in his contact list).

    On my OG Droid, just had to go into Accounts/Sync and uncheck contact. I think there was a way to do this in the Facebook app. But I'm not finding a solution on the Droid Pro.

    isn't the facebook app the same on all devices? in my version it's as simple as Settings > Sync Contacts.

    It doesn't give that option. Even uninstalled and reinstalled it and nothing.

    I'm trying to figure this out on a Droid Pro as well. I don't see any sort of settings in the FB app.

    On the Samsung S3…I had the same problem with double contacts. I went through and deleted all of the Facebook contacts. Note: You cannot edit the Facebook contacts. The next day all of the Facebook contacts were back and I had double contacts again.

    Here is how I fixed it.
    1. Got to the Facebook app.
    2. Hit the menu button on top left.
    3. Scroll to the bottom
    4. Hit “ACCOUNT”
    6. Scroll to the bottom to “OTHER SETTINGS”
    8. Now you can choose one of the three
    a. Sync all
    b. Sync with existing contacts
    c. Don’t sync
    **I CHOSE “C”
