    Angry Contacts, Facebook Syncing and Messages Nightmare!

    Hi there,

    I'm a newcomer to HTC One X from the land of iPhone and I'm struggling greatly with this new setup.

    Basically, I'm trying to achieve the following:

    - Contacts on my Phone or Google Account (say 50 contacts)
    - These contacts all linked to their respective Facebook accounts, however, no other Facebook contacts (remaining 150 ish) displayed in Phonebook, or even on my phone if possible.
    - No facebook contacts (and numbers) displayed when I try to select a message recipient

    However, so far I can achieve the first item.
    The second item requires me to manually link every phone contact to the correct facebook account, and filter out facebook contacts in the phonebook. (No automation?!)
    The third item seems impossible! I get presented with a list of message recipients which includes all facebook contacts, some of which are duplicates with slightly different numbers (e.g. 07 vs +447). These can't be de-duplicated either as that function doesn't include facebook, only phone, gmail and exchange etc.

    Can anyone help me achieve my goal?

    Thanks,

    GT

    Use the sync option in Facebook to only sync to contacts in your phone contact list only. You can do this by either in the setting options of the app or under Account and Sync in your phone setting menu.

    You can go in the phone people setting and select how it will search and select phone to match phones.

    The 2nd thing you mention may sync certain contacts as it did for me when names match, but most I had to manually sync. This has alwasy been the case for me on any Android Phone.

    I managed to get the contact linking suggestion to work, so that's all sorted.

    Still got the issue of all of my facebook contacts (with phone numbers) showing up when I go into Messages, compose a new message, and go to add a recipient. Any fix for this? I only want to see 'phone' contacts.

    I went through and individually deleted all my fb contacts, was a pain, but worked.
    My problem with contacts is that the profile picture which appears as their contact picture takes a long time/never updates to the new picture.

    Have you tried this: In the contact view, tap on "phonebook", and that tick whatever account you want to show in your phonebook.
