    I'm not sure. Mine is checked and I'm unsure if it was initially or if I had to do something to get it checked. Mine is also grayed out so I can't uncheck it, huh interesting.

    SyncMyPix is okay but it's sometimes inaccurate and doesn't always pull in photos for all of your contacts. There needs to be a better solution for this problem but SyncMyPix is a good temporary solution for now.

    Actually Sync My Pics won't work if you link the Facebook Contact with the Google Contact. The Facebook contact will override whatever other picture you try to assign. I had to unlink each of my contacts from the Facebook contact to get the picture I wanted. Otherwise anytime anyone changed their picture in Facebook, sometimes to something silly, it would then change in my address book. Drove me crazy. Now with them unlinked, it's no issue.
