Hello all. I have two question about syncing and unsyncing facebook contacts.
I don't know exactly how to phrase the question so I'll give the reason...One of my phonebook contacts has a phone number listed on a business facebook page. I specifically didn't link the business page, only their personal page. However, the personal page, doesn't pull in a phone number. When they call or I try to send a text, it comes up under the business name because it pulls what is listed on the facebook contacts. Is it possible to unsync the phone number?
Also, all 300+ of my facebook friends are listed as contacts, and although I know how to turn them off in view, they pop up when I am trying to do other things, like send a text message. Is it possible to import only certain people into the contacts, and leave the rest of them in facebook land?
Facebook sync leaves much to be desired on this phone. so let's just get right to it shall we...
1 - no, there's no way to unsync a phone number unless that person takes the phone number off.
2 - no, when you create texts and such there's no way to make it only search your "real" contacts..it searches every last one of them. now of course you can opt to not include email addresses in the search that might help limit it a bit.
Thank you. I appreciate your help.
no prob angi
If you have any questions - let me know!
n it doesn't work for me.
Hi cory obviously we want your contacts to function properly on the device can you provide an explanation on what exactly you are experiencing or what you are trying to accomplish so we can assist you further?
when i click the chain link in the upper right corner it will not allow me to unlink the facebook contact... i cannot manually break the link.
So when you tap the link button a new screen appears that has "linked contacts" with one or more there and more link buttons to the right and then you have "add contact" with all contacts and facebook under that one correct?
once it hit the chain the next screen that comes up is add contact: first box is all contacts~ press to link other contacts. the second box is Facebook~ press to link to facebook contact. I went into a facebook contact hit the chainlink and these are the two options i get.. just thought if i couldnt unsync them i could do it manually like listed above. unless i am missing some steps. just confuesd
Okay not a problem thanks for those details, basically if that is all you are seeing then they are not currently linked to anything. Do this as a test
tap the first name in your contacts
tap the link button
tap all contacts
tap the second contact in your contacts (I know they probably arent the same person this is just to show you how it should look)
then if follow the steps again you should be able to see what a linked contact looks like and be able to unlink it
let me know if that helps!
ok i deleted about 10 names and i thought it was working because the blue link line was unchecked, but i went back like i was gfoing to send a tex message to someone who's name started with an A and those 10 names were back in my address book... darn it....wonder if i am still doing something wrong, even when click done... guess my girl brain isn't working...
OH! so your concern is when you go to text someone and start putting their name in the TO field you see multiples of the same person?
yea and to many times ive sent stuff to the wrong person...ooops...lol I was just hoping there was a way to remove all these FB contacts...I dont even know half of them...
Okay well that's a little different! Your best bet for that issue is to first go and stop syncing the contacts
from the main screen
tap accounts and sync
uncheck the contacts box
Next go into your contacts
tap view or display options
uncheck everything BUT facebook if it's still there (it should be but if not you are already done)
now you are looking at JUST your facebook contacts and you can start deleting the ones you don't need
Hope that helps, I'm leaving for the day but if you have any additional questions I can help out first thing in the morning
PS I have the same problem with facebook.... who are these people
Hope that helps!
