The Facebook iPhone plot thickens. Today I went through all my contacts to make sure people who needed to be on were listed correctly, people who needed not to be on were deleted, and to correct mistakes made while importing from my old phone--the iPhone seems to have reversed most of the first and last names which I had to fix.
Obviously in my Facebook contact info I included my cell phone number, yet so many others must do the same. I have 210 Facebook friends, NOTHING NEAR 210 numbers on my cell phone, and some cell phone contacts are not Facebook friends. Yet there are several, including Earl Hamner, who can have been added ONLY due to Facebook--I have not tried to contact these people by phone nor asked them for their numbers! I left them on, because how cool is it to have Earl Hamner in your contacts, and I had no reason to delete the others although I have no reason to call them either.
The strangest thing concerns one friend who passed away who I decided to keep as a Facebook contact (because sometimes you like to write on someone's timeline when you think of them) but decided to delete from my phone because obviously I'm not going to call him. The entry for him I made myself, I was able to easily delete, but the one which must have come via Facebook COULD NOT be deleted! Apparently I have to unfriend him to remove him from my phone contacts! Yet why does this apply to him and a few others, and not to hundreds of other Facebook friends be they living or dead?

The plot further thickens. Today I again updated my contacts and this time tried to delete Earl as he was deceased. He was listed as a company, not an individual, and like my other late friend CANNOT be deleted! Luckily I liked them both well and enjoy remembering them so they live on in my phone!
