    So being a previous droid one user, and a facebook lover as well, i have a question. I set my facebook account up, and i doubt im the only one with more friends on his Facebook account than contacts list, so im sure you guys already know my question.

    I want my google contacts already on my phone to have their facebook photo and etc but i do NOT want every single facebook friend added to my contacts list. Any way to fix this? Thanks :)

    If your google contacts match the name of your facebook friends, most of the work will be done for you already (their photos). That way, you can just hit the menu button, and choose to just display your google contacts or phonebook contacts rather than all.

    For those with names not matching up, you're going to have to them link manually.

    Yeah the pictures worked great it's just on the Droid 1 it gave you the option to display facebook contacts and the Droid X doesn't i guess?

    You can choose to display facebook contacts. Under menu > display groups > and facebook.

    There's just no way to pick which fb friends you want viewed. You have to link them to your actual phone contact.

    yeah i did a combined count

    I now have a twitter(ughh)
    with myspace, twitter, and facebook combined i have well over 2500 contacts

    not to mention i know at least 600 regular contacts
    so i hate how everybody is in my phone

    plus side is i needed the phone number of a friend that i lost and since i synced facebook, it automatically put their number in the phone

    The problem for me is that when i sync facebook and twitter, my phone contact's names and caller id picture changes to what their names and pictures are on facebook. This doesn't happen to all of my contacts, but happens to a lot of them. I tried to manually change their names into nicknames i give them and their caller id to funny pictures that smbolize them manually, but it wont work. Are you guys having this problem too?

    My facebook friends pics only show up if I actually go into the id not in the regular list. :(

    Youd think there would just be an option to use whatever pic you choose to in a contact file. In many cases, people on facebook changhe thier pic to their dog, or children.

    I wanna see who it is for faster visual recognition, personally.
     
  10. Yeah the twitter sync is strange, now I have obama in my contacts :p
