    Deleting Facebook Contacts

    When I first got my DX I apparently had it set to sync with my Facebook contacts. Now when I go to contacts I have about 220 "friends" that I would never think of calling, our only correspondence is on FB. I tried to delete these and got a message that If I wanted to delete this contact I would have to go on FB and delete them as a friend. Is there a work around to this. I want my contacts list to just contain people that I call on a regular basis.
    TIA P.S. This forum rocks!!

    From your home screen, press the menu button, then settings, then accounts, then press on facebook account....then remove. You're then good to go.

    But does that delete FB off the phone (besides the app), i.e. getting messages sent to your phone, etc.?

    This works to remove them from your contacts. If you have the "Facebook" app, you can still manage your Facebook account, however you wont get notifications and you can not use the Status update widget to set your Facebook status.

    When I try to remove the Facebook account (Through Settings > Accounts) I get the following error message: Error Removing Account An error has occurred. Please try again.

    Any suggestions?
