    Hey,

    Has anyone got a setup where their phone synchronises with google contacts AND facebook, but only the contacts in google are sync'd with facebook.

    I would like to sync the facebook details only of the contacts that exist in my phone (photos, emails, birthdays, etc)

    but i dont want all my facebook friends in my contacts.

    Thanks

    Howard

    well I'm confused by what you both wrote. Fb and gmail syncs ALL the contacts. So if you have fb contacts that are in your gmail you can link the two to act as one. Doing this though you cannot sync certain contacts from fb it's either all or nothing. I don't mind it I use universal search anyways. It's nice to have contact pics for 90%+ of my contacts in my phone using this.

    question is WHY cant it though. Other phones have this...on my POS storm if I synced facebook it just added photos/info for my EXISTING contacts on my phone not added every FB friend as a new contact.

    Simple concept and to be honest its logical for a smartphone that they are hoping to aim at the corporate world. People don't want all their random friends (some of which they don't even know really) as contacts in their phone

    People in the corporate world have so many contacts that they don't even try to scroll through their contact lists to find them, so it doesn't matter who is or isn't in there. Type to search is your friend, especially since the Pre does first initial / last name.
    Yeah, uhh... it's Kevin. (KevinT was already taken.)

    Facebook is all or nothing, but Google contacts can be sorted. Personally, I have several folders with contacts I do not want synced and the ones I do are sitting in the main folder. Works like a charm.

    I agree that having 9000000 facebook contacts kinda sucks, but maybe you have too many friends.

    I can't even relate. I just type for name I am looking for. I can't imagine scrolling through my contacts...or needing to call a person or a business that I don't know their name but hope to recognize it when i'm scrolling.

    Go to contacts and delete the Google account. The calendar will stay. It's just that when you add Google for the first time, it adds everything.
