    I can't get my Facebook contacts to get off of my phone list. They aren't in my people list, but when I push the phone button they show up. I chose not to sync them and did not select sync when setting up facebook.

    Facebook app settings. Sync contacts. Remove Facebook info.

    None of that worked. I had to keep removing the account, adding it back and unchecking all the sync options until it finally stuck. It took 5 or 6 times.

    Well, glad ya got it fixed. I remember when i was setting my phone up, this was on my mind. I hated scrolling through countless contacts.

    I have Facebook unchecked in contacts and only sync existing contacts on the facebook app. Never messed with those settings prior to this thread and didn't change a thing.
