Facebook imports and share your entire mobile contact list in to your Phonebook on Facebook. Not sure how you may feel about it but your friends that are not on Facebook and does not list their mobile telephone number might throw a hissy fit. #justsaying you might want to do some housekeeping from time to time.

Follow the instructions to remove the syncing. Your Facebook friends that share their mobile telephone numbers will remain on your contact list.

Click the right hand corner Account>click edit friends>click contact

Note: Before you click Remove, you need to make sure syncing is switched off on your mobile phone.  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. Call me if you need help…or send me an email and I will call you back. You know who you are…the folks that need a little more assistance when changing settings on their computer or mobile telephones makes you impatient. Uh huh! I hope this helps.
Update: August 11, 2011 per Facebook status update:
Rumors claiming that your phone contacts are visible to everyone on Facebook are false. Our Contacts list, formerly called Phonebook, has existed for a long time. The phone numbers listed there were either added by your friends themselves and made visible to you, or you have previously synced your phone contacts with Facebook. Just like on your phone, only you can see these numbers.
