    Can you use only certain people, like a select group of people? Or if you sync with facebook do you have to use all your friends?

    you do not have to sync all. if you go into your fb app, under settings, it is self-explanatory.

    Okay thanks. I don't have a Droid yet, I still haven't decided between the Droid, or Eris. And possibly the Passion/ Dragon. That's why I ask.

    you can sync none, all, or only the ones already in your contact list.

    I synced all my facebook contacts. I want to add info (like addresses for navigation app) but it says I cannot edit the facebook contacts. Is there any way to edit them on my Moto Droid? I don't want to change any existing info, just add new info.

    i suggest syncing fb contacts with your google contacts and editing them via google contacts on the web.

    Why are some of my contacts syncing with FB photo & info and some are not? Some of my contacts are on FB but Droid phone is not pulling all my FB contact info.

    sometimes you have to make it manually sync if you entered new contacts directly into your phone. if you updated google contacts and it trickled to your phone, that should have synced fb as well. still, try to force sync them.

    to do this, go to contacts --> menu options --> accounts and un/check auto-sync

    i dont know why but it seems that auto-sync function has a bug.
