Hi there,

Just recently purchased my Samsung Galaxy S and I love it!

However, just one quick question with something that I can't seem to get my head around.

After managing to link my Facebook account to my phone and sync all my friends to my contacts (yes, I did manage to get this done, and I do know how to link my facebook friends to my phone contacts), I am having a bit of trouble figuring out how to edit the facebook information within the contact itself.

Say I have Person A added into my phone, and I have their name, their phone numbers (home, mobile etc etc) and I also have their email address' (home, work etc. etc) - When I link Person A to their facebook page in my contacts, it then shows all the details of what I have just added, PLUS the facebook details....

So for example. If I have added in Person A's "Home" email address. When I sync Person A's contact with Person A's facebook page, their email address shows up a second time as "Email Other" with their email address (this is because they have their email address showing on their facebook account)

Is there any way to remove the information that Facebook adds into the contact and JUST keep the photo image and the ability to view their facebook profile? Or when linking Facebook accounts to the Contact do I have to put up with all the double ups?

I have the same issue on mine, haven't been able to find a way around it either. Dont think its currently possible. Hopefully something they will work on on later versions.
