    So I've probably imported a bunch of contacts from facebook. But the things is. I don't want some of them to appear on my phone. Especially not those two of my friends who have the same name. So it's easy for me to choose the wrong when I wanna send a sms or something to only one of them, but select the wrong one by mistake.

    So, how do I remove contacts, when the remove option is greyed out? :)

    You can't delete your Facebook contacts and you can't edit them either. They are info from Facebook.

    What you can do is, link your contacts to correct entry on your phone. If you have two friends with same name and have two different nick names for each of them, just link their facebooks to their nick names and that way their facebooks are never to be messed up. All you will see is their nick!

    If you don't want FB contacts to appear on your people hub, you have to remove your FB account from your device (goto settings>application>people). However, you are able to combine different contacts with each other, so they appear only once in the hub. Hope that helps...

    You can also click the three dots on your People hub at the bottom of the screen, click settings, then click Filter my contact list and uncheck Facebook. Then, all your Facebook contacts should leave your contacts list.

    Actually, like noted above, you can filter your contacts (aka hide FB contacts). So no, you do not need to remove your FB account from your phone.

    No need to remove Facebook account, you can just filter them out. However it is an all or nothing filter.

    Ah, spaulagain, had already said the same thing. :D
