    Editing contact names on linked contacts
    I am linking my facebook contacts with my address book contacts but only some of them are letting me put the name i want in. The rest are forcing me to use the facebook name. i.e my mom cant be mommy it has to be facebook name "jane doe"
    Please help me!

    I have the same issue. I just got my Droid 2 and have linked my phone contacts with my Facebook contacts.

    The thing I am seeing is that some of my Facebook contacts have the name I gave them in my phone (mom instead of jane doe) and others have their Facebook names. It doesn't matter how I link them (phone to Facebook or Facebook to Phone) it still shows as the Facebook name. I want them to have the name I gave them in my phone and I can't figure out how to do this.

    Please let me know if you have figured this out.
