It turns out that Facebook disabled contact syncing sometime over the past two months.I always setup my Exchange, Gmail, and Facebook accounts for syncing contact data on my various devices.Often, you'll find that some didn't sync automatically, that you've now got duplicate contacts because the names don't quite match, or that your contacts book is overflowing with the details of Facebook friends you didn't know you had.Thankfully, there is a way to manually link or unlink contacts with Facebook on Android, and here we show you how.In this guide, we’re simply going to tell you how to sync your Facebook contacts with your Android phone – which used to be really really simple till Facebook changed their API and made it virtually impossible to sync contact lists.Firstly, if you don’t already have the official Facebook app installed on your Android phone, you should download it from the Play Store and install it.I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and the latest Facebook app.
There are several options, but the best one we've found so far that's free and works well is Sync. It's less picky than the built-in Facebook sync tool, and lets you manually choose which contacts match with which Facebook profile.
(Also see: How to switch off notifications in Facebook Messenger.) If in your contacts book you can't see any linked Facebook contacts, you'll first need to go to the phone app, tap contacts, and then tap more.
Now, click accounts, and if you've got the Facebook app installed on your smartphone and are logged in, you should see Facebook there as an option. Now go back to your contacts book and you'll find lots of new contacts, all of which have been imported from Facebook.
I've always said that Black Berry OS 10 is the best mobile platform for communications and it turns out that some recent experiences confirm that is still the case today even with the latest and greatest smartphones.
My cousin texted me a couple of days ago asking if I could help fix a new issue with his Samsung Galaxy S6.
