Facebook and twitter friends in my contacts?

Hi

 

For some reason I can see my facebook and twitter friends in my contacts list.

 

I don't want to see them there and i cannot find an option for this not to happen.

 

Help?

 

Thanks.

Re: Facebook and twitter friends in my contacts?

Hi :smileyhappy: From what I have been reading and researching. You can turn off the FB and Tw feature from coming in. One user reported that they turned it off and all was fine. Another said they turned it off and later it would come back. So I'm not sure if that has to do with OS ver. or locked or unlocked and or if it may be carrier related and the way the phone is setup?

   Do a little research, try turning that FB and Tw feature off for contact being brought in, etc

 

Best, Enjoy

Ric :smileyhappy:

Re: Facebook and twitter friends in my contacts?

The Contacts app is buggy, and it's one of my hugest issues with the Z10. Supposedly there are some fixes coming in the future.

 

This is one of those bugs - you can turn off the linked accounts, but they will eventually turn themselves back on, or if you do a reboot they turn back on. Just need to go back in again and hide them.

 

Wish there was more control over importing friends...better yet, have an option to NOT import friends and make it like the Facebook app on BBOS - view a list of friends and link ONLY the ones you want.

Re: Facebook and twitter friends in my contacts?

I found a solution to the problem

It took about an hour but it was very much worth it.

It helps you merge all your duplicate contacts. I also deleted some i did not need at the same time.

 

I JUST DELETED THE ONES I DIDNT WANT AND LINKED THE ONES I DID

Hope this helps
