    Problem sync'ing facebook with contact pictures

    I sync'd my contacts with my facebook contacts so now the pictures are showing as profile pictures from facebook, but none of them are updating to their current profile pictures, they are staying the same as the day I synced them. Is there a way I can update them? Even my profile picture wont update on my phone.

    Try this:

    Menu > Settings > Accounts > FB Account > Menu > "Sync Now"

    Do you see the updates now? If you go in and edit the contact is the FB picture updated?

    Hmmm.... I'm running Fission ROM. Are you running the Stock ROM with all the Moto Blur stuff? When I go into my Accounts and select FB I get a page with a button to remove account and if i press the menu button I can "sync now."

    So far I can confirm that the steps above work as I have had 6 or so friends update their profile pic and it is now reflected in my contact list.

    You are running the Stock ROM. Take a look at this thread:

    It seems that Moto has been having issues with Facebook in general for the last few days.

    With stock ROM I found that if you remove your facebook account and then reload it, it will resnyc but you need the facebook app for Droid already downloaded to properly sync. When you go to re-add the facebook account make sure to pick the facebook icon with darker blue (there will be 2 to choose from). The darker blue one syncs it properly with facebook.
