    is there a way to export facebook contacts to a file, save to SD card, and then import that file onto the phone contacts in contacts > settings > import

    ?

    I just ran into this when I got rid of Facebook, but then I reinstalled Facebook on my Note 5. I cleared data and disabled Facebook, and I noticed that when I eventually reinstalled the newest version of Facebook, my contacts didn't sync like they did previously. I tried different things in the app settings and android acct settings, but nothing worked.

    To fix it, I went to the Android settings -> app manager, and then I cleared data from Facebook and uninstalled updates. Then I logged in to the old version of the Facebook app. Then went to Android settings - > accounts - > Facebook and synced contacts from there. All my contacts showed up after that.

    ^ this method is what is described earlier in this thread by other users. i.e. uninstall newest fb, install old version (40 or 41 or whatever) then magically syncing should work again.

    this method does not work on my S5.

    Installing v27 as described earlier in the thread, after uninstalling the updates, and disabling FB in the application manager worked on my Galaxy Note 4 on T-Mobile. Woo hoo! Thanks for the fix Android Central Team!

    I wish facebook would fix the contacts feature but I don't want to deal with the hassle of downloading a older version of fb. I wish fb would just fix this. I love linking my contacts up to facebook and I guess this will never be fixed. do you think that this is a bug or do you think they meant to do this.

    I agree Ron. Hopefully someone will post a different work around. Or hopefully Facebook will just fix the issue.

    I have the same problem with my s5 and I am not going to be bothered with trying to install a older version on my phone just to get this feature working again. facebook help center told me it was be discontinued. idk why they would do that such a useful feature. I think that they better fix that feature in the next facebook android update. facebook should not be removing such a good feature hope it is a mistake on their part.

    Found this thread looking for a fix as to why I wasn't getting my FB contacts to sync, glad to find out it's a common issue. I did some research on FB Community Search page and found this thread there: https://www.facebook.com/help/commun...53485306296293

    I can't believe I am being this lame about FB, but it was great feature for my contact photo's.

    I also sent them a feedback response.

    Current device...Note 5 on AT&T.

    I recently purchased a new Note 4. This issue was driving me crazy. The fix described about - uninstall FB updates and update to version 27 - worked. I'm so grateful!

    Im having the same original issue. So if you cant uninstall Facebook from Samsung Galaxy s6 edge because it came installed, BUT can not install an older version on top of a new version....what is there left to do?? Everything was fine until I accidentally logged out of my FB app. I logged back in and now I can not sync it. I have uninstalled the newest updates. It went back to v34 I think. I disabled, cleared cache, forced a stop. But it still will not let me dowload the previous v27. It is driving me INSANE!! Suggestions pleeeeease???
    The version that comes pre-installed is a much lower version. The one that came on my Note 4 was around version 11. It was the same way on my S6 Edge.

    You have to sync the contacts before updating. It was version 27.

    Not sure why you are getting that error with the Note 5. I have installed version 27 on 3 different Note 5 phones.

    I'm not sure why you are getting the error message. I ran version 27 on my Note 4 for weeks, FB came pre-installed on it also.

    Even on my S6E I ran version 27 and never updated it.
