If you want to store just your contacts without ALL of your Facebook friends / contacts then don't do a "Sync All" . Then you can manually add contacts to your phone. You can then view your contacts as those you manually added, or all of your Facebook contacts & can even sync specific Facebook contacts.

Re: stop Android syncing all my Facebook contacts

Try this for only having non-facebook contacts on your Android.

  1. Tap your "People" app (or whichever Contacts app you use)..

  2. Tap Menu..

  3. Tap View

  4. Check only "Phone"..

 

When you do some searches your Facebook contacts are still somehow searched, I don't know how to completely remove them, hopefully another poster will?
