Hey guys... last phone was a G1 so I'm not used to having Facebook Sync built-in with my phone. So I went to Accounts & Sync, added my Facebook account, and told it to only sync with Contacts already in my list.
Obviously, it was going to miss a few people (people without last names, etc.), but I figured it would be no big deal to manually link those accounts. Unfortunately... I can't. So how do I link "Alexandra" in my Gmail contacts with "Alexandra" from Facebook?

I am going off the top of my head here, so bear with me:
Go to your Facebook contact and there should be a "merge" option under the menu. This will let you select a current contact to merge into your Facebook contact and combine them.
Edit: Ok, I did this: Contacts > Menu > Display Options > (choose my Facebook account) > Check "All Contacts". I'll then Join the people that are missing, then unselect "All Contacts".
You may not have instructed me exactly, but thanks for the inspiration I needed to figure it out!

Thank you so much cr3amy. I had been trying to figure out how to sync contacts with my Facebook contacts individually. I don't think we had the exact same goal, but you definitely showed me the way.
allyn274, to join, do this: when you open a contact, go menu-edit contact-menu(again)-join. Then you can pick the contact you want to join it with.
