    You can just filter the contacts

    On Start, flick left to the App list, and then tap Settings.
    Tap People by flicking left to the Applications.
    Now, Tap Filter my contacts list, select the accounts from which you want to show contacts, and then tap Done.

    Your hotmail account is pulling them in as hotmail contacts. You have to unlink them from hotmail as well.

    If you're using Live.com, chances are that you synced your Facebook and Twitter contacts to your Hotmail account.

    Any chance that you somehow have your facebook contacts duplicated into your hotmail, and that's why they don't disappear until you uncheck hotmail? If you uncheck facebook, twitter, and hotmail (assuming no google or yahoo, or linkedin), then your contact list should be empty at that point...

    A better solution would be to un-friend them on Facebook. Why would you have a Facebook account full of people that you don't consider friends?

    One of the things that I like so much about the OS is the way it integrates your contacts into the people hub. Your experience will be much more enjoyable if your contacts are an honest reflection of your true social circle. Un-friend away! It's a liberating experience, trust me.

    how would i unlink them from the

    hotmail

    account

    Well, if they're actually duplicated in hotmail, delete them. You're not going to be deleting them from facebook. The worst case scenario is that you redo the connection between facebook and hotmail. Not a problem. The scenario I'm describing is that if somehow (how, I don't know) you copied your facebook contacts into your hotmail contacts. Not linked them, but actually copied them. That's the only way I can figure that you're having the problem you're describing, unless either you're not describing it well, or I'm not understanding it well. ;-)

    Newbie user here, but I had the same problem. Using Windows 8 mobile. I go to my contacts page, then click ....Filter contacts....uncheck facebook. No more contacts from there. I assume they're in there someplace because as others have said, they come up in my text message choices. Now, that said, the reason I'm posting is that I agree this should be fixed to delete those we don't wish to see. Seems to me that there is an issue with the FB app on their end, however, making it not possible for a full delete. Maybe Microsoft and FB can come to an understanding with the app designer to make this a function in an update SOON.

    Okay, I'm having the same issue. I have the Lumia 920. I don't see a Hotmail account (which I don't have on the computer anyway) but I have Facebook, Gmail, Nokia, Google and Skype...I unchecked ALL of them and all my FB contacts are still on there. Someone mentioned unfriending them. That's not the issue. We all have people we don't necessarily call, but like to stay in touch with. Also, I have a bunch of friends in Europe and Israel that I don't ever call but they are FB friends. So HOW do I get all these off my phone? I went into the phone book itself and accidentally called someone I didn't mean to call (blush). I'd really like to just delete my whole phone book and then enter back in the ones I need.
