    Question Facebook Contact Synching
    I made the mistake of synching Facebook Contacts and now I have a bunch of duplicate contacts and contacts I'm never going to call or text. Is there a way to merge the FB contact with the contact that I manually entered?

    I'm asking because it won't let me delete the Facebook contacts and I wasn't able to figure out how to merge them. I asked Siri for kicks and she just offered to search the web for it...

    I synced mine and immediately regretted it. However i got rid of them straight away by going to Settings-Facebook-then setting contacts to off.

    Hope this helps
