    I just updated to 2.1. When I go to compose a text message and start searching for a contact, it's showing everyone of my Facebook friends. I just want to see my Google Contacts. In the People app, I only have Google checked to view. Why are all these FB contacts appearing when composing a text message?

    Thanks

    Anyone? This is really annoying...
    I just don't want all my friends from Facebook showing up when typing a text message.

    Have you logged out of FB and tried it? What message app are you using?

    I have the Facebook HTC Sense program set up to sync my contacts but I only want that to sync with the contacts on my phone (like I had in 1.5) so I get their photos and status updates. I don't want all Facebook contacts to appear when I compose a message.

    And I also have the Facebook app from the market.

    I'm using the stock messaging app.

    I just tested this and came up with the same result.

    This is odd.

    Ya it seems like once I sync my contacts with Facebook, they start appearing when I try to compose a message. There must be a fix for this??

    In "People" I only have Google Contacts checked to view.

    I'd hate to disable Facebook sync because I want to have my contacts profile photos and status updates (but I only want them.)

    Could this be a bug that was overlooked? Because I never had this issue on 1.5. Not only are all these FB contact phone numbers showing up, but also email addresses. Some of these people I would never contact in my life...this needs to be fixed.

    I hope I don't have to stop syncing with my FB account all together.

    That does not help they still show up in the messaging app...that just removes the facebook contacts from the phone list...

    Nope. That's not it.

    My box for that was not ticked and I'm still experiencing the same thing.

    Has been the same since leak one. Some apps can filter otherwise you just gotta deal with it or stop sense from syncing

    Thanks for this. I can't believe that the default for the Facebook Sense program has all of your FB contacts appearing on the dialer. There are hundreds of contacts that I would never call.

    Okay, so this will sync the pics.

    How do you turn off the Facebook contacts in Messages then?

    Another work around for messaging is to use handcent or another messaging app from the market.
     
  18. to be honest i personally like this feature of 2.1 but i can understand why it would get annoying...

    I am using Handcent and when I click the compose button it still shows all of my contacts plus all FB friends to select from. Is there a way to have Handcent filter without putting all of my real contacts into their own group. This is a huge problem!

    I've installed the SyncMyPix app and turned off syncing with Facebook, but my Facebook friends still appear when I compose a message.

    How do I remove them from the list?

    Just read this from another thread...

    Before I remove Facebook for HTC Sense, if I decide I want it back, how do I get it?

    If they're still in your contacts:

    1. Make sure your "phone" contacts are backed up.
    2. Go to settings>applications>manage applications.
    3. Wait for it to load (about a minute).
    4. Find and click on "Contacts Storage".
    5. Click "clear data".

    Then re-sync your "google" (and "exchange" if applicable) contacts, and your Facebook ones will be gone.

    This worked for me! I followed these backup instructions: Backup/Save Droid Eris People/Contacts - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    But before I re-synced my google contacts I cleared the data as described above. Thanks so much!
