    Make sure the people you have in your address book match exactly how their names appear in Facebook - full first name, middle name, correct spelling of last name. This helped me with a few that wouldn't sync up although there are still a few that for some reason or another just won't sync.

    I have myself listed as a contact in my phone, is there any reason why it is the only contact that will not sync or link up with my facebook profile? The names are spelled the same. Thanks.

    it must have something to do with the native FB app. when i use it to view all friends, many of their pics don't show up in the next to their name - but these are not the same people whose pics don't show up in my phone's contacts. trying various sync actions - within the FB app, from the home screen, and removing/adding the account - just mixes up what contacts do and don't show pics. if you're figured it out, i'm listening.

    I had this happen to me for one or two contacts, you can look here on how to manually sync them. Unfortunately it will be tedious if only 5 out of 50 are syncing right, but it's a start....

    If you have yourself listed in your contacts, the reason you aren't going to sync up is because you aren't friends with yourself. You can't add yourself to your own friends list.

    Contact picture

    I have messed up and don't know how to fix it. When I got my phone (Motorola Droid), my personal contact information picture would sync with my Facebook profile photo. Then one day I changed mine manually on my phone. Now I can't get it to sync with my Facebook Profile pic. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

    Thy this:

    Open the facebook app and go to the friends tab. Slowly scroll down making sure every profile pic loads for each friend. Once that is done, re-check your contacts.

    I think this is cause by exorbitantly large lists of friends which take FOREVER to load profile pics for.

    Alright I tried the "manual facebook sync" thing and it does not work, and it's only for the one contact that I really want it to work for. I had it synced, but I didn't want my Mom's name popping up, I wanted it under Mom, I followed the instructions, deleted the contact that was linked to the facebook profile, created a new one, now I can't even manually attach her to her facebook profile, which it was before no problem, now that doesn't work and there's not an option to manually attach it anymore.

    Any ideas?
