    Ug...I'm done with this crap! I'm tired of facebook changing crap about my contacts. How the hell do I unlink all my contacts from Facebook? I don't have FB synchronizing to my contacts, but a ton of them are still linked; I think I originally synced them by mistake. I just want it to stop and for Facebook from being the damn default for stuff. How do I unlink them all without going into each and every one and doing it manually???

    Argh!

    Go into settings -> Accounts -> Facebook and uncheck the sync options.

    The only thing I have Facebook syncing is the live feed. Why would that have anything to do with my contact information???

    When you do that it doesn't give you an unchecked option!!!
    It only gives you the option of removing your Facebook account.

    Phone: Droid X (android version 2..3.15)
    :thinking:

    Yeah, it sucks. I ended up going into each contact and removing the link. Stupid.

    I'm guessing that you don't actually own one of these devices? Otherwise, you would realize that there is no way to uninstall it.

    Nope. I can just not log into it. But I find myself using it every so often. Especially since my brother just had a new child. His wife is always posting new pics on FB.

    I had the same problem, it made me so mad. When I logged into facebook on my phone I checked the box for syncing all contacts for some reason. All you have to do to fix it, on my phone (Samsung Galexy S II) at least, is log out of facebook and log back in. It should give the option again to sync contacts. Hope that works.
