I have several people in my contacts who also have Facebook accounts. I do NOT want their photo in my contacts to keep switching every time they have a new Facebook photo. In fact, I don't want any of their facebook photos; I want the ones that I have taken of them.
I have tried editing photos in the contact page, but it will never actually use the photo that I choose for the contact.
If I remove my Facebook account from my phone, then the contact photo will be the one that I most recently selected. If I then add my Facebook account again, the photo will become whatever that person has for a profile pic on Facebook again. In fact, adding my account gives me the message that "Facebook has been set as the source of your contact photos", without giving me the choice.
I have searched for a solution. The closest I could find was to either;
1) make something other than Facebook the "Picture Source" (Contacts > Menu > More > Manage Accounts > Menu > Picture Source), but Facebook is my only option ("nothing" isn't even an option).
2) Unlink the Facebook accounts from the contact. This, however, would give me multiple accounts for the same person (one for phone, one for facebook), doubling the number of contacts in my phone.
I don't want to simply disable Facebook on my phone. I like the ability to check on my friends from my phone.
I would almost consider unlinking the Facebook page for all of my contacts, but then I have to go through all the trouble of creating yet another contact group so I can have "all contacts without facebook photos".
The Droid-2 has so much going for it. But the way it handles Contacts is awful. I have almost gotten over the fact that my contacts cannot be sorted by last name, but the fact that I cannot have my contacts on my phone with a photo of my choice is asinine.
BTW, if there is some other discussion about this, please provide a link. I haven't been able to find it.
