    I have noticed that a couple of my contacts that I have NEVER had photos of on ANY phone much less my Droid have started to show a contact image....and THEY ARE RIGHT!!!!

    Anyone else experiencing this? One example, a Verizon rep helped me in store with an MMS issue. In the process, she asked that I send her a sample text. I ended up just saving her first name with the number and Verizon for the organization in case I had anymore questions. So I have only her first name and her mobile number in my contacts and now all of a sudden there is a picture of her in the contact!

    Is this possible? Am I crazy?

    Originally I thought maybe you were just having a Facebook sync going on where your contacts were being linked to a friends Facebook account. But after hearing about the in store rep, I'm a little freaked. Your Droid must be smarter than you think: :icon_twisted:

    I thought FB was the culprit too on some of the contacts...

    ...then I found the Verizon rep and I was a little freaked myself. I have no contact with this person at all. I only have her cell number and first name and she obviously is not a friend on facebook. I have no idea where this is coming from...it's cool if it's a real feature but it'd be nice to be able to exercise a little control over it if it is!

    The rep may have a Facebook profile with her number provided in it. Facebook may have matched it to your contacts. I still think it's Facebook 100%

    Interesting...

    So I don't need to be "friends" with an individual on Facebook for it to sync their info with a contact entry in my addressbook?

    If you have a picture on your gmail account on your PC it will show up on the droid. I guessing thats whats happening.
