    Hello,
    I'm using iPhone 5s on 8.1.2 and I want to remove the Facebook field from all my contacts but not manually because it will take long time.
    There is a way to do that?

    Nope. Do it manually. I had to do the same for 80 contacts.

    It's already disabled. It looks like the sync happened automatically.

    You could just create an applescript or through automator, create a collection of all contacts where the Facebook field is not empty, then cycle through them and clear the contents :)

    Make a backup of your contacts first :eek:

    Have a search for AppleScript or Automator. They are standard tools with any installation and plenty of guides about.

    Just ensure you have a backup :)
