All Facebook contacts appearing in my Contacts

When I installed the Facebook App to my Razr it automatically added all my FB contacts to my phone's contacts.  Is there a way to remove them & only keep the regular contacts for my phone?

If you are using Facebook for Android from the market (you said installed, so I assume so), open the app, press menu>settings>sync contacts, then choose which option you prefer.  I use the sync with existing contacts, mainly because I then have a picture for all those contacts (if you already set a picture for someone, it will use that one, not their facebook pic).

I was actually wondering if there is a way I could get the FB contacts off my phone contacts.  I don't need to see all 300 of them when I'm trying to call my neighbor.

If you follow the steps I outlined above, it will ONLY show facebook contacts that are already phone contacts.  Or you can choose do not sync and none of them will show up.

Unless I am missing something, this does not work as there is no option for sync contacts in the facebook app. Any other ideas?

The option to sync contacts straight from the facebook app is gone for some reason.

Go into your address book (contacts) >menu>display options>facebook>uncheck the option to display all.
