    What in the contact list causes the contact to synch with facebook? Is it the email address, phone number or what? I have a couple contacts that I have as friends on facebook, but the contact list doesnt show their status or picture.

    Not quite the answer I was looking for. I have some people in my contact list that are friends on FaceBook, but their data isnt synching with Facebook, but most others are. So, something about that contact has to trigger what to look for on FaceBook.

    What you can do for the few that won't auto-sync is:

    Edit the contact that won't sync.
    Press the menu (is that what it's called?) button.
    Click Join.

    It should suggest Facebook friends that are similar to the contact in question and then join them together...

    facebook/contacts

    that does not work for me it asks me to join with another contact, when i first synced my phone it brung in facebook contacts and some (2 or 3) have pictures) and none of the rest i have looked and made sure the names are the same, but if you think about it they should be the same already because most of the contacts it ported over from facebook i didn't have in my contacts in the first place? any additional help would be great?

    my issue with the sync is, I prefer my contacts to be Lastname, Firstname.

    I don't want to sort through

    Bill Cosby
    Bill Mahrer
    Bill Murray
    Billy Ray Syrus
    Billy Mays
    Billy Bobby


    when I want Smith, Bill


    Either way, Facebook contacts are that way First name last name


    On some, like my brother, I edit the name from first-last, to last,first and it works and keeps his facebook pics, contacts, etc. However, some just will not change.

    Is there a trick I'm missing?
