    Is there anyway to re-establish or manually add the Facebook syncronization option to an existing contact in my Contacts app? I lost the Facebook sync icon in the contact information and this is inconvienent at best, and possibly is the cause of disabling the phone functionality at worse. Subsequent behavior on at least two occassions has shown that attempts to dial out using this particular contact locks up the dialer, causing multiple forces closes, and essentially disables the phone functionally both in and out of the phone for long periods time (10-20 mins) until the application can be correctly cleared and purged from memory.

    I was able to successfully sync my Contacts with both my Google contact list and then all my Facebook friends. However some of the contact information was not exactly how I preferred and attempts to update that information using the Google contact list was not always successful. Not entirely sure if this is a bug or by design. I was able to successfully modify one contacts name with Facebook sync from first name first to last name first (to correct sorting to my preference). A second contact wouldn't modify no matter if I updated the name information on Google contact or on the phone itself. Finally I attempted to delete the contact and re-add it. This worked but now I lost its Facebook sync (no Facebook icon to click within the contact information). I'm not sure if this detachment is causing the dialer problems.

    After syncing all my Facebook friends with my contacts (for complete-ism), I successfully deleted some Facebook friends from my contact list. But what if I want one back with Facebook sync, is that possible?

    Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any input. I'm using a Moto Droid with Android 2.0. The Contacts, Facebook, and Phone (dialer) apps are all stock applications with my Google phone.

    Good morning. I'm having pretty much the same issue I believe. When trying to clean up some info on a friend's contact listing, i inadvertently deleted her listing. I remember it saying something about the non-editable facebook info would be saved but hidden in my contact list or something like that. Anyways, I added the contact back to my Contacts manually and then resynched my Facebook list in hopes that it would link the Facebook info with the base contact I created, but no luck.

    Is there a set way to restore facebook info into a contact listing after we deleted it??

    Thanks in advance.

    I am having the same problem with a single contact that was deleted by accident and then was manually re-added. I now lost my facebook sync with that contact.

    Please help!!
