Remove Imported Contacts

Imported contacts are displayed on your Invites and Imported Contacts page and synced mobile contacts are displayed in your Facebook Phonebook. Contacts may be used to improve the quality of friend suggestions for you and your friends.

If you remove imported and synced contacts:

  • Friend suggestions for you and your friends may become less relevant.
  • Your phonebook will no longer include synced contacts, but will still display the contact info of friends who have included it on their profiles.

Note: Before you click Remove, you need to make sure syncing is switched off.

To do this, open the Facebook application on your iPhone, click the Friends icon in the main menu, then click Sync in the upper-right.
