    Hi All,

    I long time ago on Android 2.2, I could set under Account & Syncing to go sync data, contacts, etc... However, I am using 5.0.1 and I can not figure out how to sync data but not contacts. This is for outlook and facebook. I only want contacts from my g-mail to sync only.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you gone to:
    menu
    system settings
    accounts
    facebook
    select contacts ...and turn it off. The same for outlook.

    Facebook doesn't allow contact syncing anymore.

    Thanks to both of you. I sat there trying to figure that out for a while. I clicked on Outlook and was able to turn Contacts Sync off. As stated, I did a search for Facebook and it appears to be the case.
