    I can't tell you how many times this damn phone doesn't like linking accounts. Drives me nuts. Try and go to your account and sync settings and go to the facebook one and just click the sync contacts. Nothing usually happens at first but give it a second or minute and it'll pop up in the notification bar. Then it'll let you link em up. Try it out.

    Are your phone contacts on the phone itself or the sim card? When in your contacts list, did you go to Menu then View and check to make sure FB is checked. It should show the number of friends you have there.

    Umm...hmm lol. Go to your settings. Accounts and sync. Facebook. Then click that. You should see "contacts" and a green circle to the right of it. Or grey if it isn't syncing. At the bottom of screen you should see "sync now". Click that and wait a few minutes or so.

    they are on the phone and no I do not have the FB friends checked. I remembered once it showed me a list of suggested linked contacts and I dismissed them all.

    Click that circle again till it turns green and it should begin syncing. Eventually the notification should pop up in the bar and let you link them all. Always try a reboot if phone or remove facebook account from phone and reapply it.

    sign out of facebook, itll say you will lose all sync data or something like that (but you dont have any so its no big deal) then sign back in...

    If you want to be able to view them and link to them, it needs to be checked.
