    Facebook sync contacts

    So in my old Droid I was able to sync facebook pics and contact info on contacts that only exsist on my phone. I setup face book on my new Droid X and it syncs all contacts. It's driving me batty. Anyone know how to get this older feature back? It seems they removed it or moved it.

    I'm with you here, I hate that I have all these random blasts from the pasts in my contact listing. God forbid I accidentally dial one up sometime. I like syncing just the photos and status messages but not all their info.

    I installed the Facebook for Android app, and tried to go into "Accounts" to manage settings to it as I did with my original Droid but it wouldn't let me do anything just clicked on the icon and it lit up and took me nowhere.

    If anybody has a solution to this would be appreciated.



    UPDATE: Found a nifty little work around at least. Go into "CONTACTS" and hit the "MENU" button, click the "DISPLAY GROUP" and change that to just "GOOGLE" hides the Facebook contacts, and since I have everything in my Google account works out fine for me.

    The only problem with that is if you got to dialer then contact tab it has the all list. not the google contacts groups you select in contacts

    Poor implementation of this feature, but I had the same problem with my HTC Incredible.

    Yeah, this is definitely annoying. It really frustrated me last night. If anyone finds a way to sync your facebook profile pictures of the contacts from Gmail and gmail only, I'll be really happy.
