So I have an interesting situation that i need help with.
Just got a new Pre yesterday (well, actually a refurb) and set up everything again just how I want it. However, when I went to relink some of my contacts, I noticed that some of my facebook contacts didn't have an account logo next to their contact name (i.e. Palm Profile vs Google vs LinkedIn vs Facebook).
So, I went into Account Preferences and Facebook only showed as having 75 contacts, even though I have over 500 in Facebook and they all show up in my phone. Odd, huh? So, I deleted facebook as an account and guess what... all but those 75 contacts remain in my contacts!
But, when I relink facebook into my phone, it only brings those 75 contacts back in and leaves my other 400+ in this mystery non-profile, and does NOT update their info (i.e. pics, emails, etc) [ EDIT -- Note that changes in Facebook actual DO update these contacts in the phone. Someone just changed a pic and it showed up correctly. Odd, huh? ]
So, somehow they got linked to a magical mystery account and I can't get my facebook contacts, and I don't want to manually delete 400+ contacts to get them to sync back correctly, and I also dont want to do a full erase on the phone (again). Any thoughts?
