Really small, yet frustrating problem. Trying to link my contact with a Facebook friend. The contact appears in the Facebook for Sense app, but in the phone list app, when trying to link it, he doesn't appear at all. I noticed that some more recently added friends don't seem to appear on this list even though they appear in the Facebook for Sense app.
Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas? I tried logging out and back in. No dice. I double checked that sync contacts was on (not that it should matter since they already do appear on Facebook for Sense). At wit's end. Anyone?
Alright.... to be honest I can't help you with that problem. However, I was curious if all Incredible owners experienced what I am going through when I link my contacts to facebook. I used backup assistant to restore my contacts and allowed the facebook app to sync with contacts. However, when pressing the Phone button, when I go to type the name of a contact in the phone.... all of my facebook friends are included. Say there are only two Mike's in my phonebook.... when I dial the letters corresponding to Mike I only want to see the ones in my phonebook... not the 20 something Mike's information linked to Facebook. If anyone has had any similar trouble/ luck with this problem I would greatly appreciate any insight.
Thanks in advance
Found a solution in another android forum. I had to go to the friendstream app, logout and login. That seemed to resynch my contacts in the HTC facebook, making it available for me to link in contacts. Convoluted, but worked!
How do you logout of Friend Stream? I managed to do it once (and it did resolve this same issue that I was having) but now I can't get it to give me a Sign Out button anymore.
Hit menu in the app, then settings, then accounts & sync, then facebook. Here I think I hit "remove account" and then added it again later. Try that.
I feel like I tried everything. It won't let me add the "facebook" account just the "facebook for HTC Sense" account. Like I said all my contacts are linked to facebook and in the People application only the ones from my phone are shown which is great. The problem is simply in the Dialer, when I go to dial a number it suggests a list from my 300+ facebook friends names'. I'm starting to believe there is just no way around this unfortunately.
I just purchased my Incredible and found that I am missing exactly 3 contacts. I tried logging out of the friend stream and back in and it made no difference. I only have 166 ppl on my list so its not the size. Any other ideas work for ppl?
You might resolve this by going to your contact book>menu>view>un-check Facebook.
I am having a similar issue with my HTC Desire. I recently added a contact, and when I searched to link their contact to their facebook profile, they weren't listed. They are listed when I go to facebook on my phone and look at my friends. I tried removing my facebook account from Friendstream and re-adding it, but that just removed ALL links to facebook profiles in ALL of my contacts. Feeling very frustrated.
