    So i am new to android and setting up a new MOTO DROID, so far so good.
    I am having a weird issue with the contacts, took a couple of tries but got all contacts from backup assistant to Gmail to DROID.
    So now both Gmail and Facebook are syncing with my contacts.

    Here is my problem, i erased a contact because he already showed up from facebook, than i noticed that the facebook contact did not have the phone number.
    It did not let me edit and put a phone number, so i figured I'll erase this one and add it manually so i can add the phone number.
    While trying to erase, a facebook notice came up and said you cant erase but you can hide it so i hit okay.
    So now the facebook contact is hidden which i can't figure out how to un-hide it, and the contact i re-added will not sync with facebook, i also made sure it is spelled the same way.

    Any help would be appreciated, i would hate to start all over again.

    On your contacts you added manually just rename then to their facebook conterpart. ie John in contacts but same person is John Paul in facebook contact. Then just rename John to John Paul and the 2 will merge automaticly (give it a couple seconds to sync)

    Edit: in facebook make sure to use option to sync with existing contacts. (just make sure contacts on phone make the same name as stated above)

    Also make sure there last name is in the family name spot on the contacts on the phone and the first name under that. Dont put both on 1 line.
