    Hi all,
    I'm new to the android OS and I got a Hero two days ago. Is there anyway to get all my facebook numbers into my people list? I have the facebook phonebook link on my homescreen with the my contacts with their numbers but they are not in my people list so i cant directly send a text from the facebook phonebook I can only call, so is there anyway to merge/import to my people list on the phone

    Thanks, Anthony

    I have this exact same problem. If you ever find out a solution let me know please. This is really starting to get frustrating....

    I don't know if this works for all phones, but on my HTC Incredible, when I am in my contact list I can press theft menu button and one of the menu options is "View". When I press that, it brings up a screen with checkboxes, one of which is Facebook contacts with phone numbers. When I check that box it adds my Facebook friends to my contacts.

    Hope that works for you.

    With Android 1.5 (that the Hero comes with) you cannot get facebook numbers into People (only picture and birthday), you can only add the facebook number widget to your home screen.

    With Android 2.1 you can add your facebook numbers (and other details) to People. The Hero 2.1 update is rolling out now so you should get it in the next month or so or you can already upgrade to a custom ROM.

    If the initial sync didn't work, sign out of the app and sign back in.
