    Hey guys I got another problem which is annoying the crap out of me

    So in my Contacts on the display options, I turned off show Facebook contacts, everything is fine all my contacts are normal

    but on my Text Messaging (Messages), it displays every contact from facebook who has a phone number/email in their profile, I thought Contacts and Messages would be sync'd and not do this

    Is there anything I can do? Also....why would Samsung be so sloppy with this phone and not add a notification light....

    I hear this is an Android issue in general and not exclusive to Samsung.

    Does someone have a solution to this? It is annoying to see facebook friends on my message contacts because they added their phone number/email

    yet it doesn't show up on my phone contacts

    ahh lol, did it involve deleting the whole facebook app? because i still want my phone contacts to display their profile pictures, but hate how i can't hide non phone contacts on my messages

    no it didn't...it had to do with some settings in "contacts"

    So far I have nothing. Even If I select show only Facebook contacts in phonebook the messaging apparently still shows all contacts from Facebook

    Pretty big bug. Using a different msg app is not a work around either

    The only work around.d is rather than searching by list....press in the empty box and starttyping a name or number in the too field (this is why I never noticed this big)

    man i really hope they fix this on ice cream, it never did this on my atrix, but i know it does it on other phones i believe.

    also the group messaging is quite off, when messaging a group of friends, when they reply, it won't show the original message from the group message, that is such a flaw i found in this phone and other android phones that my friends told me about.
