    Just got the 2.1 update and so far I am pleased. The one thing that bugs me is one aspect of the facebook integration.

    On 1.5 i love how my people(contacts) would update/sync with their facebooks. Mostly I like the how the profile pic would show up.

    On 2.1 it still does that, but now when i click on phone it shows every facebook friend I have (all 200+) but when i go to people(contacts) it only shows my google contacts.

    My question is, Is there away to still have the facebook sync but with out having all friends show up in the phone list. I just want my contacts to show?

    I have search but can not find any option like this

    Did you find anything more on this? I have the same issue as do others it sounds like, but I haven't been able to find a reasonable resolution.

    Go to People>Menu>View and uncheck Facebook.

    And I believe going to Settings>Accounts&Sync>Facebook and uncheck Sync Contacts within there will also do the trick.

    you have to go in the market and update the facebook app. then restart your phone. worked for me.

    I think what is happening is the phone and people are pulling your contacts from two different list. In 1.5 it seemed it would pull the contacts from the people screen. I hope there is a solution to this as well.

    same problem here..after a long long time of deleting and deleting contacts after syncing again and again i atleast got facebook contacts not to sync..
    import all your gmail contacts in vcard form and put em in sd somewhere

    go int settings >mangage applications > contact storage and clear the data which will remove all your contacts

    go into people > menu >import>sd>phone

    this will bring you all your gmail contacts safe and sound without facebook involving itself

    i still cant get the facebook linking and stuff to work tho

    I finally un-synched my Facebook contacts from my phone just to get rid of the extra people (and duplicate phone #s) but I'm still not even able to sync one at a time. It seems to be all or nothing. Bummer!

    I went to People>Menu>View and then Checked Facebook. I exited, went back into People>Menu>View and then unchecked Facebook and it left me with just my contacts in my phone synced to Facebook like the old 1.6. I am using Villain 2.1 Rom.
