    The whole Facebook Android app is jacked- if you google this problem it goes back for months without anyone having any solution outside of whiping their phone.

    Menu button > settings > applications > manage applications > all

    Force stop:
    Contacts
    Contacts storage
    Contacts sync adapter

    Then try and remove the facebook account

    If that doesn't work go into contacts and backup/export contacts to sd card.. then

    Menu button > settings > applications > manage applications > all

    Clear data for:
    Contacts storage

    2nd thing worked. It won't let me add contacts now though- it says I do not have a valid account

    Scratch that, it works now. I imported what I saved to the SD. Thank you so much!! That massive contact list was ridiculously annoying. You should be on Verizon's payroll, lol.

    I am having this problem as well. I was able to fix it on my Droid x, but my roommates droid 2 is unfixable it seems. This is the first thread I've found that showed someone actually fixing the problem but I have a question before I try it.

    If I port the contacts out and then delete, what will happen to my phone contacts? Will I loose them all? Will they remain on the phone and just the facebook ones will disappear? Will I be able to port the old ones back or will I have to port them ALL back and then delete one by one the ones I don't want. (out of 450 stupid facebook contacts UGH). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Also I should mention, it won't let me do ANYTHING with facebook. Its not showing me status, or wall postings. It won't let me change the password. It won't let me delete the account. The only thing that seemed to actually work was the contacts porting in which I didn't want. lol

    **edit** I should also say, most of that stuff earlier in the thread you said to try force closing WOULDNT forceclose. I would press the button and it wouldn't do it. The only one that would actually close was the third contacts one.

    This worked for me.

    You import your contact list that you just exported to your SD card:

    open contacts then press menu button > more > import/export. Select the file you previously exported to your SD card before you cleared your data and import it.

    Yeah. Backup contacts with the export option... follow my instructions and then import them.

    Although I solved the problem.. I actually never had the problem myself... so I don't know if it exports all of your contacts and your facebook contacts. I know as a fact it backs up your phone contacts.

    But based on the response I got I'm assuming it did exactly what you want... and that when you finally import your contacts.. only the phone contacts will.

    If not I think he would have said something after he imported it. Like "****.. now I have to delete all these contacts".

    FULL INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. Go into 'Contacts'
    2. Menu Button > Import/Export > Export to SD card
    3. Menu Button > Accounts > Uncheck 'Auto-sync'
    4. Go back to home screens
    5. Menu Button > Settings > Applications > Manage applications > All
    6. Navigate to 'Contacts Storage'
    7. Clear Data
    8. Go into contacts
    9. Menu Button > Accounts > Facebook > remove account*
    10. Menu Button > Import/Export > Import from SD card
    11. Menu Button > Accounts > add account > Facebook
    12. Choose option 'Sync with existing contacts'
    *If you get an error then try force killing Social Networking, and trying again Menu Button > Settings > Applications > Running Processes > Social Networking {{ WugFresh }}
