    Facebook contacts sync changes contact's name

    When i go to sync a certain contact lets say i have a friend of mine saved in my phone book as Art, i go to sync him with facebook and his name there is Arthur John Michael, it changes my contact name to his full facebook name and i can not change it back to Art. Is there a workaround to this its kinda annoying.

    Do you have both "Art" and "Arthur...." showing in your contacts list now? If so, you can join them (search these forums for details on how). I think the process is basically edit the first one, bring up the menu and choose "join", and then it's pretty intuitive.

    No I only have one contact now under the full name arthur...however when I click on it it says art under the name but under the phone book its filed under the full name. So if I have one of my friends by his nick name let's say "stone" and his real name is anthony first it won't sync with facebook I have to change his name in the phone book to anthony sync with facebook and then if I go to change his name back to stone it'll change it but in the phone book hell still be listed as anthony...
