    I have the phone set to not sync Facebook contacts. There are a lot of people I will never call on my Facebook account. However when the dial pad is on the screen and I scroll through my contacts I keep seeing Facebook people synced with my phone. If I delete the Facebook app the Facebook contacts disappear. When the Facebook app is installed if I go to Menu>Settings>Accounts & Sync> Facebook is listed there. If I click on Facebook and uncheck all the options it still syncs. If I delete Facebook from Accounts & Sync the app remains on my phone but I'm logged out of Facebook. If I then log into Facebook the process starts over with my Facebook contacts mixed in with my phonebook contacts. I've tried deleting the app through Menu>Settings>Application>Manage Applications and then reinstalling the app. When I reinstall the Facebook contacts are mixed again with my phone book contacts. I read on another forum that the app "Friend Stream" included with the phone may be the culprit but I cannot delete the app. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    You cannot delete it, but you can delete / sign out your account.

    I had the same problem and this is what I did...

    First, you may have to remove the Facebook account from the Rezound to remove the existing Facebook contacts and then re-install Facebook. Then, I did the following:

    1. Click on the Facebook icon on the Rezound to open Facebook.
    2. On the Facebook main page, hit the menu button on the Rezound.
    3. "Settings" should be an option. Select that.
    4. Then you should see a list of settings including "Other Settings" near the bottom. Select that.
    5. Choose "Don't synch".
    6. DONE!

    I had this set as "don't synch" on Facebook using my PC. However, when I first used the Rezound and installed Facebook, it automatically changed to "synch." By doing this manually, it should fix the problem, as the Rezound appears to still try to synch but Facebook's internal settings should stop it.

    HTH.
