    Is there a way to make it so that the facebook contacts, etc, don't show up in your default contact list? I just want to show the names and phone numbers of the people that I have actually programmed into my phone, not everyone that I have on facebook...

    if you're using the actual facebook app you should be able to go in to that app, settings, and tell it not to.

    Hmm, seems I haven't used it in a very long time and that changed.
    But on the Droid 2 go to your Contacts, hit menu, Display Group, and select Google. That will show only those from Google.

    Hopefully someone else will have another tip for the Facebook thing.

    If you want to only use the app and not see the contacts or have them sync then remove facebook from your accounts.

    Then when you open the app it will ask you to login.

    Now on the downside if you want new updates to show up in widgets then that will not work with this not showing up in your accounts section.
