How to manually link Facebook profiles with people in my Contacts?

I have switched from 9900 Bold to z10 but I can't find the "link this contact to FB" option anywhere.

I know that z10 will eventually link all Contacts with FB, but from what I have read "NOT ALL OF THEM" because some of them don't match the names on FB with how I created them in Contacts. :No:


Is there a "manually" way of linking Facebook profiles with appropriate Contact entry?   :Batman:

If you Go into your Contacts(icon), swipe from top down, settings, turn on show account in contact list and make sure facebook is on.  Once you do that, it will add your facebook contacts in the contacts list.

 

Bring up the facebook contact now with search in contacts, open contact and there is an option to link. then select the contact you want to link to. Hope this helps.

Yes, i suppose that could work.

Still they should put more easier way of doing that. Because I leave "show acc in contact list- facebook" off because there are too many people that I really don't need in my phonebook.

Strange how there is no separate "filter view" to see only sim card contact (not fb + sim contact together). That is why I leave the fb contact view off

on the off-topic...

Do you find that volume buttons some times being accidentally pressed in your pocket to the point where the ringtone becomes silent?
