This is interesting โ€” I just did the same and none of that info is in there, and I've been using Facebook on my Android phone for years. I wonder if it's because the UK/EU has different personal data disclosure rules? What section of the zip was that all in?

nope, regular cellular calls with the stock 'Phone' android app I used facebook's integrated SMS+cell call functionality for about a week at one point, but disabled it quickly after and went back to the stock app

The 'Contact Info' tab, inside 'html/contact_info.htm' the only other interesting page I found was the 'Ads' page, which shows all the keywords that are used for you in targeting

Inside 'html/account_info.htm'. There's an 'index.htm' that serves as a homepage to all of the photos+ads+messages+videos+pokes pages in that folder too IIRC

my ZIP file was ~250mb, but if you have more photos and videos it'll be much larger because it has every photo and video across every album and PM

There should be a ZIP file with your username in it. Extract that by right clicking, open the 'html' folder, open 'index.htm' in a web browser then navigate to the 'Contact Info' tab
