Default Contact Apps Interfering With Text Messaging HELP!!

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a Blackberry Q10 and already I feel like throwing the thing out of the window. Hopefully I can get some help with this issue as it's driving me nuts.

I use Facebook and Twitter and have installed both apps on the phone.
Now the problem comes from the Blackberry Q10, automatically syncing all the contacts from both accounts to my phones Text Messaging Contacts.

There is absolutely really frustrating me, I have turned off all settings for both accounts in the Hub and and contacts section.

Yet both accounts still show all contacts, when I'm adding somebody from my address book for texting messaging. So I find myself having to filter through hundreds of contacts

I just want my Text Messaging service to read my SIM Card rather than the contacts through the whole phones apps.

I have looked up around the net, and nobody seems to have a real solution to this problem.

The only way around it seems, is to completely uninstall the apps of Facebook and Twitter and use the browser instead for both sites. However practically I prefer the apps, because of quick access in the app menu.

Is there any solution to fixing this syncing contacts to my Text Messaging and can I set the Blackberry Q10 when using the Text Messaging service to read just my sim phone contacts instead of all contacts???
