I have one major gripe with this phone. Some of my Facebook contacts suddenly showed up on my phone list. No matter what I do, I can not remove them. I have the Facebook app deleted, but I still have the Facebook for HTC Sense. The FB for HTC Sense is no where to be seen on my Accounts>Sync list. However, it is in my app management list, but I can not uninstall it. I can not manually remove them and unlinking them through People does nothing. I want these contacts off my phone and I have tried numerous methods with no luck. Why is Facebook hardcoded into Sense and why is it so stupid that it add contacts that I never asked it to sync in the first place?
unfortunately it's not something you can uninstall. but go to your app drawer and click Setup. then hit Next all the way to the last step. it should show you Facebook for HTC. click it and then sign out from there. that should stop your contacts.
also, go into your contacts, hit the menu button then View .. make sure that after you sign out it doesn't have Facebook checked.
I've tried that and no luck. Only a few of my facebook contacts show up, not all of them. Facebook for HTC is not signed in through set up, I never did sign in through that. I don't want or need facebook on my phone. Its kind of stupid that I can't get rid of or disable this altogether. Facebook does not even show up in Contacts>view so that is not an option.
oh ok .. same thing happened to me and HTC Peep ... i just unlinked the last few that i saw .. maybe try that. see if they're linked to another contact and just unlink it.
Have you tried opening Contacts, do Menu-->View, and unchecking Facebook?
yes he has ... he just said it doesn't even show up there.
Same thing happened to me. I have 4500 FB friends!

How many of them do you know enough about to consider a friend?
Less than I can count on fingers and toes! I just did a hard reset on my phone to clear everything. Now I'm trying to add back FB without adding contacts. I hope I don't ***** up...
