    You can't when you sync with Facebook. It takes whatever info the person has given Facebook and syncs that with your phone. Contact your friend and have them update their info.

    Add a separate contact for them then merge the contacts.

    I'm with Omid - this seems to be a major failure, among other extremely convoluted processes on the Alpha. In order to add a phone # to a contact that was created from Facebook, I have to create a new contact with the same name, then it will ask me if I want to merge -- I have to accept, then once I save the info I have to, no kidding, hit 'cancel' rather than 'save' because otherwise it will send me into an error loop that will never resolve no matter how many times I hit 'save' - after hitting 'cancel' of all things, the contact will be updated. I don't understand why you can't edit within the contact that was created from Facebook? Seems like a basic thing to me. Any resolutions out there?

    Oh yeah, and then it turns their email addresses into mine, it's insane really.
