Default Contacts problem

So I have contacts from facebook (I only add people I know). Some of these contacts have the peoples number and some don't. I can't edit a facebook contact it says to add a number. So instead I have a facebook contact and a phone contact with the exact same name but with the number. How can I merge these? I'm sure I'm not alone on this.

Open the phone number contact. Hit menu, edit, menu again, then join.

I hear you..as far as I know that's the only way to do it unless your contact names are are listed exactly the same as the Facebook names.

I found out you can merge them when you sign into your Gmail account on the computer

This is what I did. It's a pain, and yeah, you have to have your contact's name be the same as their Facebook name. It's a real PITA when somebody wants to use a clever nickname and you just want their real name.

Ultimately, it's a choice between, don't sync, or sync and have a mess, or sync and merge and deal with the compromise.
