    All 1200 of my Facebook contacts now appear in my main contact list. I have tried deleting them but it only hides them and I can only do them one at a time. Any help please in getting rid of them in one go would be appreciated

    in the facebook app, in settings, you should be able to turn off 'sync contacts'

    Thanks for the tip. I went into my settings and that is already disabled so I'm still stumped

    Come at it from the other direction. Go to Contacts on the phone, then Accounts using the menu key. Is Facebook listed? If not, then go to Contacts to Display using the menu key, and see if anything comes to mind like not displaying contacts unless a phone number is provided which should knock out your Facebook listings. Then go to Settings from the menu key if the problem persists and give that a try. Good luck.

    I tried all that Allan and they were already unchecked. I'm a bit stumped on how to do it. Thanks for your help

    Let's clarify. You selected "Only contacts with phones" under Settings when in Contacts, and the Facebook listings persisted? So you have phone numbers listed for your Facebook folks? That's curious. Oh well. :thinking:

    In contact list, bring up the menu, then "Contacts to display", what does it tell you? I kept having this problem on my Note3 where my FB contacts kept coming back, and it did it on my S4, but now it doesnt.

    Hi Allan
    I discovered that by doing what you said, it seemed to correct itself after 2 days. Hmmmm funny it took that long. When i went into my contacts it showed all my Whatsapp contacts too so i went into my menu and i was able to select "contacts i can see" and i selected sim and now it seems back to normal. Thank you for your help
