Created attachment 823482 [details] LinkSpecialCharacersFacebook.mp4 Description: A Facebook friend with the same name will not be recommended as a match if the saved contact name on the phone has a special character in their first and last name. Repro Steps: 1) Updated Buri to Build ID: 20131025004000 2) Create a contact on the phone that has the same first name and last name as a Facebook contact that the user will be importing. Put a special character after their first name and a special character after their last name. For example: Kevin$ Trevor* 3) Tap on the contact that was just created and then tap on "Link contact". 4) Sign into Facebook. Actual: Notice the message "no matching friends found" even though the contact has the same name as the Facebook contact but has a special character in their first and last name. Expected: The Facebook friend with the same name as the saved contact should be recommended as a possible match.

This issue is by design. We don't support auto-merge for FB contacts because of a partner contract.
