    When I first received my Evo about a week ago, without doing any manual work my pre-existing contacts were synced with facebook. Facebook didn't add contacts, it just put a picture beside them and gave me some additional details on them, like birthdays and emails. Since, I've messed roms and the like, and have lost this. Now when I try and sync (even on the stock evo rom) it will only pick up a few of my contacts, about 10, and thats it. Not only that but their is an annoying little "f" facebook logo in the corner of their pictures too. Can anyone tell me how to get this to work again? Currently I'm running Myn's Warm, a sense rom, and going to settings > applications > facebook for sense > sync contacts.

    Also, is there anyway to tell it not to add every single fricken birthday to my calendar as well? I didn't ask facebook to sync events and birthdays to my calanders, thats just too much going on.

    Thanks for the help!

    Not sure on the first issue. It could be the rom you are using.

    In the calendar app, hit Menu-view, and uncheck Facebook.

    open the people app in your app drawer

    press menu.view.check facebook for htc sense and this will add all facebook contacts to your main contacts list


    from within people click on the third icon at the bottom, the internet symbol , click facebook, menu refresh

    I only have the second option enabled ..which is done via the menu you went through but noticed some were not "linked". I used the first method and "linked" everyone then unchecked it and it stuck. Some had to manually be linked.

    Seems to be an issue everytime I change roms and I may or may not have had to add footprints back on the phone to get it to sync properly. can't remember
