From your Mac, 'Contacts">Accounts>select 'Facebook' on the left hand side and untick 'enable this account' in the window on the right

Go to settings, facebook, turn off contacts, also go to contacts on your phone, click on the tab groups on the top left in contacts, then uncheck facebook in groups, then tap done.
Do that on your phone.

What if you don't see the groups tabs? I am so frustated trying to unsync my FB friends.

Open contacts on your phone. It is in the top left hand corner when 'All Contacts' are displayed

And this is where the problem is for me. I am in all contacts...to the left I have an arrow thing and to the right a +. I don't have a groups tab. What does the arrow thing mean?

Thanks to everyone for your replies. I am continually amazed at how specific to each device these settings can be, or at least how specific they can seem. chrisfromgastonia, I did figure out that unchecking contacts in the facebook settings on my iphones solved the bulk of the problem. However, there wasn't a facebook groups to uncheck in my list of groups. Likewise Smith121, there was no facebook account enabled in my contacts application on my computer, so I could not do that. However, I do have another groups related question. Ever since this last update pulled all my facebook contacts into my synchronized contacts, the groups function on my contacts doesn't work anywhere. All that happens is that if I try to access a specific group, the check mark beside the name of the group gets unchecked. I used to be able to select a group and then have the full list of members of the group come up and only those names. No more, there is no accessing the members of the groups, only the names of the groups to look at which does NOTHING AT ALL to help me. Any ideas? Advice?

Well if you have a backup of your phone from before you did the facebook contacts, and it is not to old or you wont lose anything that is important, then you could connect to itunes, click on restore under the summary tab, then restore from your backup. If you have the backup from before facebook contacts issue, then your phone will be restored to the same it was before facebook contacts. But again, you have to have the backup from before this occured.

Iphone 4 IOS 6.0.1 then it has (10A523) whatever that mean.
On my first phone...somehow I was able to do it, I am assuming through contacts because it asked me at the bottom if I wanted to delete FB friends. I don't remember going through the settings. But with this replacement...I can't find the groups tab.

Both of you can go to settings, facebook, tap on your facebook name, then delete the account. Then go to your facebook app and delete it. Then go back into settings, facebook and resign in, this time dont allow the app to have access to your contacts, and dont turn the contacts tab on. Also re download the app and do the same, dont allow access to your contacts.

OK...now I am stuck. I went to setting and deleted my facebook account. Then I deleted the FB app. When I go back to setting to resign in it doesn't give me the option to disable my contacts or calendar. I only have an option to sign in or cancel and it says that signing into FB will download my FB friends to contacts. It does say in setting you can disable contacts but that is only after you sign in. If I go back to settings and try to not allow the contacts...it brings me to the page where I have to sign in.

That's fine , sign in and don't upload contacts and also contacts should be off at first.
