People vs. Phone contacts

    The 'People' widget has all my phone contacts that I synced with Gmail. The 'Phone' contacts are everyone I have as a friend on Facebook. I do not want all my FB friends showing up in the 'Phone' contacts and there does not appear to be a way to delete them. In other words, there are "friends" I have on FB that I have no desire to call and I just don't want them in my phone.

    Is there any way to make the 'Phone' contacts match the 'People' widget?

    Check (or uncheck) all that apply.

    Aha, thanks for the info but for some reason that isn't working. In the 'View' menu I chose 'Google', which has exactly the contacts that I want on my phone, but the 'Phone' contacts are still the same. My damn Congressman is listed in there and, while I do like the guy, I don't really have a need for him in my phone.

    The only answer that works (somewhat: the pictures don't match some of the contacts) is to sync the gmail contacts and use syncmypix app to add in the pictures.
