1. Got to the "My Favorites" tab. By default, this should be next to the home tab in TF3D
2. Select "All Contacts" to open up your contacts list
3. Go to the "Updates and Events" item under all contacts. This should be the 2nd from the right of the phone and is a person with a clock by their head.
4. If you have Facebook linking enabled, at the top of the screen, it should give you an option to link contacts with your phone all at once and bring up a second screen to choose profiles that match when you select it. I've found that it's much easier to link profiles if the names match exactly, mainly for names that can be shortened such as Matt/Mike/etc.
5. Choose contacts to link and if you want photos/birthdays to be saved to your phone and finish

Now all your contacts that you're friends with on Facebook should be linked to your phone. Hopefully this saved you some time and I'll post up pics tomorrow then.
Right on man - thanks!

The first thing you need to do is go to the Settings tab in TF3D and open up My Contact Card. Then go to the bottom and log into Facebook. Next, you can follow the steps in the first post to link your contacts with Facebook.

Re: HOWTO: Link Contacts with Facebook

how in the world do you turn off facebook linking? i have over 600 friends bogging down my phone now... i am so stupid for pressing that link button. there is no option to batch remove friend links. only that option to bulk add... guess i have to individually remove each contact link..

Re: HOWTO: Link Contacts with Facebook

If you have total commander or other file explorer other than the one built in, there are 2 files in the root of the device (at \) that control facebook linking info. I'm guessing that if you just delete those files, it will unlink all of your contacts all at once. The file names are Facebook.vol and FacebookInfo.vol. Just to be sure they don't break anything else, I'd back them up prior to deleting them.

When I hit facebook link I then noticed how my phone went to a crawl. I decided to check my memory and sure enough I watched as it slowly filled up for several minutes. I have been back and forth on this idea of deleting root files but it seems the file sizes should be larger for the amount of data in there. We are talking hundreds of mini profile pics and the combined file size of the 2 facebook files in the root folder is like 500k... that's nothing! Anyone else have any luck removing this facebook link and clearing the space on their device that the feature once ate up?

Re: HOWTO: Link Contacts with Facebook

I don't know about clearing the space, but if you go into your contact card, at the bottom there is a dialog I thing that says unlink or log off facebook.
