Re: Help! Facebook taking over my phone!
My EVO 3d is really irritating me with respect to syncing with FB contacts. I keep all of my contacts in Gmail, and that's all that I want to appear when I hit "Phone". The problem is, Facebook for HTC Sense turns on contact syncing by itself even when I have manually turned it off. This happens every 3-7 days, so I have finally given Facebook for HTC Sense the finger by removing it completely. I know Google really would like to have me sync my FB contacts with my phone, but I want to keep my FB friends in FB only. I don't want to call them.

Go to applications
Choose all applications
Go to contact storage
Wait a minute
Gmail contacts are back, FB contacts are not
IF Gmail contacts don't show up after a few minutes, go to Gmail and restore contacts (if they are missing) to a previous state -- never had to do this though...
I plan to leave FB for HTC Sense turned off for good now. I'm tired of playing the "oops, somehow Sync Contacts for FB for HTC Sense somehow got turned on" game. If I wanted my FB contacts to show up on my phone, I would turn it on myself.
