    Been running 3.1 for most of the day now and I'm pretty happy with it. One problem though, when I first went and setup my facebook, I selected to only sync with existing contacts. I let it sync, then went to my contacts and all the facebook pictures for those contacts showed up. A couple hours later I went into my contacts and all the pictures were gone. I went back into facebook and the "sync contacts" area was changed to "don't sync". I changed it back to "sync with existing", let it sync, go to my contacts, and none of the pictures are there.

    Suggestions?

    I've always had to "join contacts" manually. Ie; Download contacts from SD then in FB chose "sync with all" then join em, then go back into FB and chose sync with existing. It never works when I just just chose sync w/ existing.

    All my phone contacts that are FB contacts show that they are synced though. If I go in to edit that contact it doesn't show the picture under the facebook information and it says "facebook contact information is not editable on this device." I use to be able to see the picture, long press it, and select "use this picture." Now it doesn't even showing a picture in the contact edit area.

    Yes. I went to the market and uninstalled from there instead of opening it. Then I went back to the market and reinstalled it. I couldn't go the the settings>manage apps.

    I tried uninstalling with titanium then re-installed through the UD menu. Same problem. I didn't do any reboots in there. Would that help? Any other suggestions?
