    When setting up my phone i synced up facebook with motoBLUR and now i don't know how to unsync them. I want to import my contacts from my iPhone, not from facebook. Everything i've found online has to do with exporting to SD Card, which i currently dont have yet.

    Blur doesn't have any useful options with unsyncing facebook contacts. It's one of it's many failures. You're just going to have to remove facebook from your blur accounts.

    Additionally, I can't get the Android facebook app to sync to existing contacts. It won't let me select it in the "other accounts" area of "Accounts & Sync" settings. Probably another blur problem. Yep, I don't like blur...

    For what it's worth, goto contacts, click the 4 squares button on the bottom left, click groups, and then you can choose to only display google contacts, or only phone contacts etc.

    Not perfect, but a step in the right direction.

    if you have not installed many application and haven't customize your phone much it is best to do a factory reset and get started again...

    Just to be clear (I'm thinking of buying an Atrix)... when you sync your Facebook contacts with Blur all those contacts appear in your phone book? If they do, is it possible to display only phone book contacts and then link those to your Blur Facebook account?
