Many contacts - which were also FB contacts - were simply removed from the phonebook: phone numbers lost.

However, the only common thing I found in them, that they were all FB contacts. But:

  • Some contacts (minority) which were FB contacts as well, stayed (with removed FB info of course).
  • Some contacts being only FB contacts stayed with the contact info only containing the FB chat hash.

EDIT: This is not about FB-related data (pictures, birthdays, etc), but the PHONE NUMBERS, which are way more crucial in a phone than stuff which I can find on FB any time.

Yes, something is wrong, that is why I made this question with a 'bug' tag. For some FB contacts I can also only see the names and chat link (hash), even though they (only FB synced contacts) should have been removed. Removing contacts with separately entered phone numbers by the update is really weird.

Yes, I am aware of those and the FB API change.

I did not lose the FB-related details but the phone numbers, which were separately added to contacts. And in a weird way: not all were lost, and even some "empty" FB-only contacts remained.

Hi, it is not. It is not about the FB-related info, but the phone numbers. I don't care about pictures, birthdays and such crap, but phone numbers are crucial in a phone.

Yes it is.. loosing all existing contacts (with fb migation background)

No it is not. :)

I don't wanna get offensive here, but better read the question before imagining all my contacts lost. Not all are lost. FB migration is the background, but the problem is completely different and more severe, and should not at all be the result of FB API change or missing new API implementations.

In your linked post there is nothing about losing actual phone numbers, it is about the FB content.
