    Go to settings >>> Accounts
    Select Facebook and Remove the account

    Follow the same process and re-Add the account. It just worked for me.

    I'm having the same problem. Thinks it's sad if this is the only way to update contact pics to their latest fb pic..

    I had the same problem, and I thought it was a pain to reset my contacts. I use an app called syncmypics to update my contacts pics.

    That's how my trouble started. Only after romoving the facebook account my X turned to crap and wouldn't do anything. i fixed all that through backups but now my old myspace account won't remove, my twitter won't add,and my facebook won't sync contacts nor will it remove so that i can re-add it. I need help.

    I ran into the same problem and I decided to do a factory data reset, which fixed this. Seemed to be the only way to fix this.

    Also, I don't sync any accounts anymore except my gmail. Tired of things appearing and unable to delete..

    Hi..There.

    It worked for me also.
    Delete your contact pictures in facebook and update the pictures accordingly.

    I'm sure this did work for some people. It didn't work when I synced my Twitter account, though. The people I followed (though most removed)were in my contact list and unable to delete. Over time, I got sick of it and a factory data reset was the only option left.

    So when I go to re-add the FB account, why do I see two FB accounts to choose from? Picking one of them lets me re-add, picking the other one does nothing. Corrupted memory?

    One is the motorola blur facebook built into the phone. It's more of a service than an app. The other (larger) icon is the actual facebook app from the market.
