    so, some of my friends on facebook decided that it would be funny to make their phone numbers different than they actually are (ie. 867-5309 and 911), this poses a really serious problem for me because I could accidentally dial 911 when trying to call my friends, is there any possible work around that would allow for me to remove the false number from the contact without completely removing facebook from my synergy?

    Can you not edit the numbers manually?

    i think your friends screwed you. i mean it's not really a problem with the phone. it's assuming the number is valid. personally i just don't have facebook in my contacts cause it's full of numberless entries from people i don't want to talk to anyways. it be nice if you could choose to add only certain groups. Then i'd just make a group for people i want in my phone.

    Anybody who changes their number to 911 is an *****. If a 'friend' did that to me they won't be a 'friend' anymore.

    IMHO It would just be nice if Synergy could be turned on or off, or if it was teachable, (like if it asked you on a contact by contact basis.) Somehow, every time I use Mark Space's Missing Sync, I wind up with a bunch of contacts linked together.

    If you want to blame synergy, blame Facebook first for allowing a phone number to be "911".
    Lovin Sprint, and the Pre.

    True. synergy is the middle man. The real problem starts with your friends.

    "Starts with" yes. But Synergy should allow more flexibility.

    It would be nice, for example, if it let you (1) Manually choose which contacts from social networking sites to include and (2) Let you set what type of contact information it used from each source - so a "No phone numbers" from Facebook filter.

    Agreed with everyone who says the real problem is your friends. However, you can always enter new phone numbers for your facebook friends--this will in reality start a new contact on a different service that will be linked. So you're not limited to using the information your friends provide.

    I just did this yesterday. Got a text message from someone I know, but I didn't have her mobile phone number in my contacts. When I added the number to my contacts, I selected add to existing, and found her facebook entry. When I added the number, it created a new contact for her on my Exchange server (my default account).

    It's not perfect--the contact on my Exchange server has her email as her name, but it does have the phone number and her email in their proper fields, respectively. I would also like to be able to choose which account gets the new information (I would rather have had this one in my google contacts), or change it later on (like you can with calendar entries). But it does get the job done.

    Really, you would stop being friends with a person because of that? It's painfully obvious that they're joking...right?

    I have done similar to what JBG did - either go into their profile in your "Contacts" area and manually add a new number, or make a new card for them and link them and make it the Primary.

    Maybe they're a 911 Operator.

    The problem is synergy's rigidity not his friends. Its an all or nothing deal right now so remove the syncing from FB until Palm fixes the issues with it.

    There is nothing even remotely funny about causing a person to dial 911 for no reason. It's retarded.
