    Hi,

    Just got my new incredible and loving it!! One question, how do I get my facebook friends to NOT show up in my "people" or contacts section? I only want the people that I manually enter to show up. I searched and found one other thread but I couldn't figure out what they said. Thanks for the help!!

    This topic has about a million threads. You need to go uncheck auto sync in the settings. Take google off too, while you're at it. That is if you have a gmail acct...

    OK, thanks for the help. They are not showing up under "people" but when I press phone from the home screen they show up there. That is where I am trying to get rid of them. Thanks again!

    Yeah, as far as I know, it's not possible. It bugs me as well.

    When you pull up the phone, hit Menu, and then hit "People". You have to do this each time, but at least you won't have to scroll through all your Facebook contacts to find the person you want to call.

    I had the phone for about 6 hours before I opted to do a complete wipe and start fresh in order to get rid of that.

    It happened when I turned it on for the first time and during "setup" it synced all that stuff without asking me when I entered my facebook info.

    I just put the "people" program on my home screen and use that as contacts, doesn't have people in there whose numbers I didn't originally have in my contacts, so I like it.

    I just completely deleted the Facebook account from sync options and all my fb contacts disappeared.
